19 Hospital Information The Baby Place Where New Families Are Born Hospital Admission During your pregnancy, please obtain instructions from your healthcare provider so you understand exactly what to do when it s time to come to the hospital. (If you think you are in labor, call your provider, who may ask you to come to the hospital to be monitored.) When packing for your stay at the hospital, we suggest you pack personal toiletries, gowns, robe, slippers, bra, baby s going home clothes and mother s going home clothes. The hospital cannot accept responsibility for valuables such as jewelry, credit cards, cash or personal belongings, so please leave these items at home. Your Birth Experience At Saint Joseph Hospital we want to support your individual birth preferences. Our facility offers labor triage rooms, LDR birthing suites, delivery rooms equipped for Cesarean deliveries, and recovery rooms. Discuss your ideas early in your pregnancy as your healthcare provider may offer direction and guidance specifically for you. Once you are well informed, you are better able to decide among the services we offer for the birth of your baby. Patient- and Family-Centered Care We at Saint Joseph Hospital believe that you and your family come first. Our patients define their families. The word family refers to two or more persons who are related in any way biologically, legally, or emotionally. At the heart of Patient- and Family-Centered care is the belief that healthcare providers, patients and their families are partners, working together to best meet the needs of you and your baby. Patient- and Family-Centered Care provides a comforting environment which supports and encourages communication between providers, employees, patients, and their families. The Starting Place The Starting Place (OB Triage Center) is designed to accommodate you and your labor support person during early labor examinations while your labor is being evaluated. We suggest that other family members and visitors remain at home to be notified once labor is confirmed. The Starting Place is a unit consisting of four evaluation rooms and a labor lounge, where you can watch television or listen to relaxing music as you walk or sit on a birthing ball for comfort between labor assessments. The Starting Place is staffed by Certified Nurse Midwives. Whether you go to The Starting Place or directly to The Baby Place, you will be asked a series of admission/prenatal questions pertinent to your care. If your journey begins in The Starting Place, your labor evaluation may last from two to four hours. If there are complications or when labor progresses, you will be transferred to The Baby Place. The Baby Place Many women choose to have their babies in a birthing suite because it has a comfortable feel, similar to a bedroom at home. The cozy room has a birthing bed that converts to a delivery bed for the birth. Most suites have whirlpool tubs. The birthing suite is also called the LDR because this is where you labor, deliver and spend your two- to threehour recovery period. Although the room is comfortable, emergency care is available immediately if complications arise for either mother or baby. Saint Joseph Hospital is a teaching hospital and, therefore, you may have nursing students, medical students and resident physicians involved in your care. This is to ensure high-quality training for healthcare providers of the future. One of our highly skilled labor nurses and your own physician or certified nurse midwife will also be involved in your care. 17

20 Hospital Information The Baby Place We encourage you to have a labor support partner (baby s father or another close friend or relative) with you during labor and birth. The guidelines for other visitors in Labor and Delivery may vary based on your individual situation and needs. Our goal is to protect your privacy and to provide you and your baby with a safe environment. Children may be with you in the LDR; however, an adult other than the labor partner must accompany the child. One adult of your choice may accompany you for a Cesarean delivery and will be given sterile, disposable clothes to wear. Some families want to bring a camera or video recorder. If you wish to video record special moments in the birthing room, please bear in mind the need to obtain permission from physicians, nurses or staff you may want to include. When your baby is born, the nurse will examine the baby s condition. To nurture the attachment between you and your baby during the period immediately after birth, we encourage you to participate in our Baby s First Hour program, as long as mother and baby are doing well. During this time we promote skin to skin contact with your baby for up to one hour or until the first breastfeeding is complete. Skin to skin contact provides warmth, bonding and improves breastfeeding success. You will place your naked newborn tummy down on your bare chest. Fathers or significant others are encouraged to participate as well. Identification bands will be placed on your wrist and your baby s wrist and ankle. A fourth identification band is available and can be placed on the wrist of the baby s father (or other support person) if you desire. You will be asked to sign a permit for this person to wear the band, as the band allows access to the baby in the nursery. The identification bands provide security for you and your baby. Your baby will also be footprinted. Pre-register for your hospital stay at saintjosephdenver.org. The Women s Place Mother/Baby Once you are both ready, you will be moved with your baby to the Mother/Baby Unit. A team of nurses cares for both of you during the remainder of your hospital stay. The rooms on the Mother/Baby Unit are private, as family-centered care is our goal. Each room has a day bed. This provides an opportunity for mother, baby, and dad or partner to stay together. Each of the postpartum rooms has a private bath, shower, telephone, television and DVD player. While you and your baby are with us, we encourage your family to stay with you as much as possible and to become involved in baby s care. Children who are sick or running a fever are asked not to visit, so that your new baby can stay healthy. Visitors must wash their hands before handling the baby. Please be aware of your need for rest and limit visits accordingly. To help you get the rest that you need we encourage you to take part in the unit s Quiet Time. During Quiet Time the staff will limit interruptions to only those that are medically necessary to allow you time to sleep, relax and bond with your baby. Encourage visitors to avoid this time if possible. Quiet Time occurs from 1 to 4 a.m. and 2 to 4 p.m. daily. If you wish to have privacy while nursing, suggest that your visitors go to the cafeteria. You may ask your nurse to place a sign on your door if you are sleeping or don t want to be disturbed by visitors. There may be occasions when it is necessary for your nurse to interrupt your phone calls or visitors to care for you or your baby, and we will attempt to keep these interruptions brief. Mother/Baby Care when the nurse cares for both you and your baby in your room (rooming-in) is designed to encourage togetherness and bonding, teach you baby-care skills, and support you in these first important days after birth. Mother/Baby Care involves having the baby in your room 24 hours a day. It fosters a closer relationship between the two of you, allows you more opportunity to become familiar and comfortable with your baby, and enhances the care we can provide for both of you. We believe all family members benefit from early contact with the newborn baby, and we encourage as much time as possible with your infant. Register for classes online at saintjosephdenver.org. 18

21 Hospital Information The Women s Place Mother/Baby Your baby will stay in your room during your hospital stay. Your baby will be taken to the nursery briefly at night to be weighed and have a hearing screening test. Research has shown that babies who spend the night in their mothers hospital rooms sleep better, awaken less, and cry for shorter periods of time. The same research shows that mothers who have 24-hour rooming-in get the same amount of sleep as the mothers whose babies spend the night in the nursery. When babies are born between 35 and 37 weeks gestation they require special care with feeding and temperature control. The nurses, lactation specialists and physicians will help you learn their unique needs. Your newborn s picture will be taken, and you will be offered an opportunity to purchase a variety of portrait packages, including portrait birth announcements and online birth announcements. In addition, you will have the opportunity to develop a web page for your baby s photo. Only friends or family members designated by you can view the photos on your web page. Going Home An average stay following a vaginal birth is one to two days and two to three days following a Cesarean delivery. Your discharge time is coordinated with your healthcare provider and keeping your needs in mind. Please make arrangements for transportation prior to your day of discharge. Follow-up home care by nurses is available. Please check with your healthcare provider for recommendations. Your baby s car seat must be installed in the car before you leave the hospital. For help with installation of your car seat, make an appointment with Baby s First Ride (see page 14 for more information). Antepartum Services Antepartum means before birth. Our Antepartum Unit specializes in the care of high-risk mothers, and is dedicated to the care of women and their families. During the course of your pregnancy, there may be circumstances that would require you to be admitted to the hospital for special, individualized care in our Antepartum Unit. Your doctor will decide if it is necessary to more closely monitor you or your baby and to identify risk factors to treat complications. During your stay, you will be monitored and managed by your OB provider. If necessary, the Maternal-Fetal Medicine physicians will provide consultation and co-management of your high-risk pregnancy with your OB Provider. Our nurses are specially trained and experienced in caring for women who have high-risk pregnancies. You may stay on our Antepartum Unit until delivery, or you may be discharged and asked to return as needed, depending on the circumstances. It is our commitment to provide a soothing and comfortable environment so you can relax and be reassured that you are receiving the best care for you and your baby. Wireless Internet Access Free wireless Internet access is available throughout the hospital to access personal , work or to send new baby photos. Detailed instructions are available by visiting saintjosephdenver.org and in the Patient Guide. Please note that technical support for this service is not available through Saint Joseph Hospital. 19

22 Hospital Information Lactation/Breastfeeding Services Saint Joseph hospital is pursuing the Baby Friendly designation. Baby Friendly is a global effort supported by both The World Health Organization and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Baby Friendly hospitals support successful breastfeeding for both mother and baby the best start to a healthy life! The Lactation Specialists at Saint Joseph Hospital are a valuable resource for women choosing to breastfeed in the Denver area. Our main priority is to help you be successful in your journey to breastfeed your baby. We provide help and support throughout your hospital stay, as well as after you go home. The Lactation Specialists provide the latest evidence-based information, along with the caring touch that Saint Joseph Hospital is known for. Services include: Breastfeeding Helpline The Lactation Specialists are available to answer your questions during pregnancy, or once you leave the hospital.

Baby Joe s Baby Joe s is a specialty shop for new moms and their families, and features a full line of nursing bras and baby items. Breast pump sales and rentals are available (see back cover). Call for location, hours and more information. Why Should I Choose to Breastfeed? While you are pregnant, you comfort, protect and nourish your baby. Breastfeeding is a wonderful way to continue this care after your baby is born. Making the choice to breast or formula feed is not just a matter of personal preference. There are important differences between breast milk and formula that you should be aware of. Breast milk provides the best possible food for your baby because it is more easily digested and protects against allergies and illnesses, like painful ear infections, and pneumonia. Breastfed babies have lower risks for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome/Crib Death), obesity, diabetes and cancer. Breastfed babies get milk that s perfect for them fewer tummy aches and less diarrhea or constipation. They get so much holding and cuddling, it is no wonder moms and babies love it! The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding for at least one year and exclusive breastfeeding until infants are six months old. You may also be surprised to know that women who breastfeed usually lose their pregnancy weight more quickly and that they have a lower incidence of breast and ovarian cancers. Breastfeeding has another advantage it is inexpensive. The cost to breastfeed your baby is less than half the cost of formula feeding. If you have further questions about breastfeeding classes or resources, call the lactation specialists at Saint Joseph Hospital at They will be happy to help you!

23 Hospital Information High-Risk Services Maternal-Fetal Medicine Center At the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Center, caring and technology go hand in hand. Our focus is the subspecialty of high-risk obstetrics, also called Maternal-Fetal Medicine or Perinatology. A high-risk pregnancy occurs when there are medical complications affecting either the mother or baby during pregnancy or birth. Our high-risk mothers and their unborn babies are cared for in a warm, relaxing and friendly atmosphere. The health and well-being of our new parents and growing families is our primary concern. You will most likely be referred to the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Center by your OB provider for consultations based on the specific circumstances of your pregnancy. We will co-manage your pregnancy with your OB provider if a medical complication or problem should develop with you or your baby. The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Center provides a comprehensive range of both outpatient and inpatient consultation services including care for maternal medical complications, fetal abnormalities, ultrasound services, diagnostic procedures, genetic and preconception counseling and prenatal screening testing. We also offer diagnostic procedures such as chorionic villus sampling, amniocentesis, and others as needed if problems develop during your pregnancy. Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions. Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Your baby deserves the best care possible, and that is what Saint Joseph Hospital provides. Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is located near the Mother/Baby Unit and consists of 30 private rooms. The security of having their baby nearby is comforting to parents whose baby needs special care. Here, premature babies and critically ill newborns receive the highest level of care from specially trained physicians and registered nurses. The hospital is staffed around the clock with neonatologists who are pediatricians with three additional years of training in newborn pediatrics.they have expertise in complications and providing specialized medical care for newborns. In addition to neonatologists, special care is provided by neonatal nurse practitioners who are on duty 24 hours a day. These practitioners are registered nurses who have additional education and experience in the care of sick newborns as well as ongoing care of newborns. Families are encouraged to take an active part in caring for their infant. Sometimes a mother is medically ready to leave the hospital, but her baby needs additional care. Families of these infants can stay in one of our guest rooms at The Parent Place for a limited number of days at no charge, based on availability. This allows the parents to be close to their infant at all times. Parents are encouraged to call and visit. Parents, grandparents and close friends may visit as long as they are free from illness. Siblings who are healthy and supervised may visit, although no other children may visit. Parents are welcome in the NICU 24 hours a day, and are encouraged to participate in their infant s care. 21

24 Hospital Information Other Helpful Information Visitor Meals Family members and guests may purchase a meal using the same room service menu as the patient. Guests can purchase a voucher in the hospital cafeteria. The guest may then place their order through the room service telephone number. Smoking To ensure that all patients, visitors and employees are provided with the safest possible environment, and to reinforce the fact that smoking is a significant health risk, Saint Joseph Hospital is a smoke-free campus. We have established these smoking restrictions for the wellbeing of your baby. Your Baby s Birth Certificate Saint Joseph Hospital Birth Certificate Clerk Colorado State Office During the Baby Business class, you will fill out information for your baby s birth certificate as well as apply for a Social Security number for your baby. The birth certificate is an important permanent legal document that will be used by your child throughout life. It is helpful for parents to decide on a name, and the spelling of the name, prior to our requesting this information for the birth certificate. If changes or corrections have to be made after discharge at the Office of the State Registrar, there will be a fee. Later changes may require a court order. While you are in the hospital, you will be given information on how to obtain a legal copy of your baby s birth certificate. Hospitals cannot provide these certificates. Paternity Information A paternity form is offered to unmarried couples. This form is free of charge if it is completed at the hospital before discharge. This form requires a witness. If friends or family are not available to witness it, hospital staff may witness as long as the father has a current photo ID. A paternity form can be completed at a later date through the state office, and there is a fee for this service. Resources in the Hospital While you are in the hospital, if you have any questions or concerns about your care that cannot be answered by the nurse caring for you, please ask to speak to the manager. You may also ask to speak with the director or nursing supervisor by calling the hospital operator.
