When you are in labor

  • You can have up to 3 people with you
  • They must be the same three people the entire time
  • We will give them wristbands so we know who they are. Only visitors with wristbands can stay with you
  • Your children can stay with you. An adult must care for them in case they need to leave the room. Your children count towards the 3 person limit
  • If you have a Cesarean delivery, one person may stay with you in the operating room

After your baby’s delivery

  • One person may stay with you for the first hour after you give birth
  • This is a special time for you and your baby
  • We will be checking up on you and baby often. It is also a good time to breastfeed for the first time

On the Newborn Family Unit

  • All family and friends can visit
  • Visiting hours are 24 hours a day
  • However, we suggest that you rest and do not have visitors during 'quiet time' from 2:30 pm-4:30 pm each day

If you have any questions about this policy, please contact Michele O'Hara, RN, Nursing Director, at 617-724-1878
