We know that family support helps patients recuperate faster after childbirth, so we encourage loved ones to participate in patient care during the postpartum period. That’s why every room in the Women’s Center is spacious and private, with an extra pullout bed, a work area and storage space. This allows a partner or other family member to comfortably stay with mom as long as she wishes while she is recovering from childbirth.
For babies in our Level III NICU, we also offer a home-like environment that enables parents to bond and sleep in the same room as their baby. We also help with practice caring for multiple infants and those with special needs—all while being monitored and cared for by some of the best neonatologists from Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
