After welcoming your newborn at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital, rest in our private, comfortable and family-friendly mother/baby suites.
Built For Newborn Bonding
Your room is specially designed to let your baby stay with you so the two of you can bond with your newborn. When your baby is nearby:
- Your infant will cry less, breastfeed sooner, gain more weight and sleep more.
- You’ll observe and learn from nurses as they tend to him or her.
- You can more easily practice Kangaroo Care, which helps your baby stay warm and well and adjust to life outside the womb.
- Research shows that you will sleep better when your baby stays with you in your room.
For such reasons, the World Health Organization, The American Academy of Pediatrics and many medical experts recommend you and your newborn stay together as much as possible.
