Women’s Center Visitation Guidelines

Labor and Delivery

All visitors must register with photo identification at our Women’s Services check in desk.  In order to maintain a comfortable, safe, and inviting environment for all of our mothers, the healthcare team may limit the number of visitors at any period in time.  Additional visitors are able to rotate from our very comfortable waiting area.  For the health of both our mothers and babies, visitation may be restricted based upon presence of illness, recent exposure to illness, or travel history.

 Baylor Frisco is a family centered and welcoming facility.

Operating Room

One support person may be designated to be present in the operating room.

Recovery Room

In the case of a Caesarian Section, the baby and mother will be transferred to a recovery room with one support person in attendance.  The number of visitors allowed in the recovery room will depend on the census in the Labor and Delivery recovery area.

Postpartum

Accommodations will be provided for one adult visitor to stay overnight, all other visitors are asked to leave before midnight.  “Nap Time” is from 2:00 – 4:00 pm daily.  Activity should be limited to allow mom and baby to rest.  Children are allowed to visit until 10:00 pm.
