The following applies to all patients:

  • Clear liquids and light snacking in most cases.
  • You may choose the lighting, music, etc.
  • IV access is required (this may been a simple saline lock). IV fluids may or may not be needed.
  • Episiotomies are no longer routinely recommended and only performed if indicated.
  • We strongly recommend all newborns receive Vitamin K injections, vaccines and antibiotic eye ointment. These are all standard recommendations. If you have concerns with any of these interventions, please discuss them with your pediatrician.
  • Your provider will discuss all changes in your condition and recommendations for further interventions.
  • All of our nurses are highly trained to assist with breastfeeding. We also have lactation consultants available in the hospital. If you need further assistance once you are home from the hospital, outpatient lactation services are available. We can provide more information about these services upon request.
