Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center (P/SL) has a long history of providing exceptional care for families in the downtown Denver community and we are continuing that tradition with the opening of our new Mom & Baby Unit.
Our new space is designed to offer a comfortable environment while providing the best care for you and your growing family. It has spacious rooms with large windows to let in natural light, sleeping sofas for your birth partner or family member, breastfeeding pillows and breast pumps in every room and state-of-the-art technology, which allows us to provide our moms and babies the highest level of care.
Mom & Baby Unit Accommodations
During your stay on the Mom & Baby Unit you will enjoy private rooms and bathrooms, television, sleeping accommodations for your family member and a special meal for you and your partner. The Lullaby Lounge is available for you to gather your family, watch TV and help yourself to the great snack selection. Mom & Baby is a secure unit , offering peace of mind to new parents.
Lactation Consultants are available 7 days a week to assist you with breastfeeding. For infants needing supplementation during their stay, breastmilk is available from the Mother’s Milk Bank. The only program of its kind in the region, Denver’s Mother’s Milk Bank, offers donated milk for babies with severe allergies, immune deficiencies, and malabsorption syndrome or other gastrointestinal problems.
During your stay on the Mom & Baby Unit, your baby will receive several routine tests and medications to ensure they’re healthy and ready to go home. Before you leave, you will attend our discharge class that will provide you with all the information you will need to care for yourself and your baby.
The Mom & Baby unit is located in close proximity to our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) so moms can be close to babies who need a little extra care.
Your Newborn’s Records
During your time in the Mom & Baby Unit, several key components of your child’s birth will be recorded. You’ll receive your baby’s birth certificate and social security number . You will also have the opportunity to have your baby’s first picture, an irreplaceable keepsake, taken by a professional newborn photographer at P/SL. Newborn pictures are taken upon request and can be purchased while in the hospital. Your baby’s footprints are taken at time of delivery and you will receive a complimentary copy upon discharge.
