At Bayfront Baby Place we strive to ensure your delivery is comfortable and all about you. That is why we have considered every detail, from valet parking, to plasma-screen televisions and private family rooms. We also have the spacious accommodations that allow for the safe delivery and after-care of your new baby.
Labor & Delivery Suites
Our spacious labor and delivery suites feel more like a hotel than a hospital. Custom art, soft linens, hidden medical equipment and large bathrooms are unexpected touches that ease anxiety for expecting families and ensure a "wow" experience.
Bonding with your new baby continues as families move seamlessly to sunlit recovery suites. These rooms are designed for optimal bonding and recovery, and include a sleeper sofa, bassinet and accommodations, such as large sinks, so that baby can stay in the room even for his/her first sponge bath.
Post-Op / Surgical Suites
Preparing for a cesarean-section is more private than ever before in our dedicated surgical unit. Patients and loved ones will prepare for and recovery from surgery in a private, soothing environment adjacent to our operating suites. A special family lounge is reserved for family members waiting to meet babies delivered by cesarean-section.
Nursery Care for Newborns
Staffed by skilled and caring nurses, Bayfront's nursery is equipped with diagnostic and monitoring equipment. Babies needing a little extra TLC will be cared for in our nursery by a specialized clinical team. Infants with special needs will be transferred to All Children’s NICU for care, just a short elevator ride away.
Bayfront Baby Place is a regional referral center for patients who need high levels of care prior to delivery, including mothers who require an extended period of monitored care. Now, we offer the most home-like environment for our patients, including roomy suites with large beds, scenic views, work centers and a dedicated nursing station.
A separate family lounge offers some of the amenities of home, such as a game table, kitchen, washer/dryer and room enough to host celebrations and enjoy time with loved ones.
