Support After Baby Arrives
At Mimbres, the caring for you continues after your baby is born. After the months of planning and preparation are over, you both deserve some rest. We encourage mom and baby to room together. We offer you and your new family quiet time immediately following delivery so you can bond, nurse, and celebrate with your little bundle of joy.
Visitors are welcome, but when a new mother wants and needs rest, a team member will kindly explain that she’s requested some time alone. We encourage extended family and friends to call ahead and ask the nurses for a convenient time to make a brief visit.
Mimbres Memorial Hospital OB staff are lactation trained to help with your breastfeeding experience and will review your concerns, observe you and your baby during feeding and offer guidance on how to get the most out of breastfeeding.
