Women’s Center Visitation Guidelines

Labor and Delivery

Up to 3 people may visit a patient during labor, others can rotate from our very comfortable waiting area.  No children under the age of 14 will be allowed in Labor and Delivery except for siblings of the infant.  Siblings younger than 14 are allowed for short periods of time.  Unfortunately, children under 14 are not permitted in delivery rooms.

Operating Room

One support person may be present in the operating room at any time.  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.

Recovery Room

After delivery, 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.  No children are allowed in the recovery room.


Accommodations will be provided for one adult visitor to stay overnight, all other visitors must 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.
