Features and Services
At both facilities, you will have access to the latest in healthcare technology, an amazing multidisciplinary team ready to handle your every need and a number of features specifically catered to moms and their babies. Our facilities’ services include:
Mother and Baby in Same Room
Welcome your baby and spend time getting to know each other right away. Healthy babies stay in the room with Mom around the clock while at the Women’s Center at Las Palmas. During this time, new parents bond with the baby, gain experience with feeding and enjoy those first days of closeness.
At Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare, the Labor & Delivery staff is committed to babies enjoying a peaceful transition out of the womb and into the world. Delaying the baby’s bath benefits newborns in many ways – from strengthening the immune system and lowering the risk of infection to keeping blood sugar stabilized. For these reasons, and more, moms who give birth at our hospitals have the option of a delayed bath for their baby.
Babies love touch, especially closeness with their parents. That’s why the staff at Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare encourages skin-to-skin touch between parents and baby, commonly called Kangaroo Care. Skin-to-skin touch keeps baby’s body warm and breathing rate normal as the baby snuggles closely with a parent. It also lowers the stress level for new parents and helps them feel extra close to their new baby.
Private NICU Rooms
Some babies need special care after birth, either because they are born prematurely or with a medical condition requiring treatment. At Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare, we recognize that privacy is important for all newborns and their families. Our state-of-the-art Level III NICU offers large private rooms for newborns, where each parents and family can spend time alone with the baby. One of the rooms features two beds for twins!
It’s your baby. Your choice.
Simply let your doctor know that you choose Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare, where beautiful births happen every day.
