Visiting a Newborn

All visitors must register with photo identification at our Women’s Services check-in desk.  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 can rotate from our very comfortable waiting area.  For the health of both our mothers and babies, visitation may be restricted based upon the presence of illness, recent exposure to disease, 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.


Accommodations will be provided for one adult visitor to stay overnight.  We provide 2 hours per day as “Nap Time” from 2:00 – 4:00 pm daily.  During this time, we try to limit interruptions to only the necessary care.  We hope to facilitate a calm and quiet atmosphere for you and your family.

Safety and Security

The safety and security of you and your family is a high priority at Baylor Frisco.  A high tech electronic tracking device is placed on your infant in the delivery room so you can be assured that the only people handling your baby will be authorized personnel and you.  Our unit also has additional features in place to ensure a safe and secure experience.


We provide CareView, a communications system in each room so that patients can stay connected with friends and family, and also enjoy TV entertainment.  This technology also allows our nursing staff to monitor patients and their needs.  You will be able to visit with family and friends and correspond with loved ones via video.  Proud grandparents and friends who may be far away when your baby is born can see your new bundle of joy on their computer.  This service is a password-protected service, which is controlled by the patient.
