Who better to advocate for the use of alternative pain relief methods during labor than a labor and delivery nurse who’s actually used it?
Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) precautions, our Special Care Nursery, Pediatric Unit, Labor and Delivery and Post-Partum Units although open 24/7 to one support person in L&D/Post-Partum or parents of hospitalized infant(s)/children, the one visitor/support person is strongly encouraged not to leave the hospital.
If the visitor/support person needs to leave due to an emergency, their return must be approved by the unit manager or director. For Special Care Nursery and Pediatrics – the staff from those units will review the policy at the time of admission.
