Before the big day

Expectant parents are invited to tour the New Life Center and attend childbirth education sessions. In addition, a certified child passenger safety inspector is available to help parents choose the safest car seat – and install it correctly. And certified breastfeeding educators help new moms learn how to feed their babies.

After baby is born, moms can also request a Medela Symphony breast pump for use during their stay.
