All moms are encouraged to have their partner or a designated support person with them at all times, in all situations. Our visiting hours are based on the requests of our mothers, the care that they require during different stages of childbirth and in consideration of their need for rest and teaching. Please share this information with your friends and relatives before you come to the hospital to ensure you receive the rest and care that you deserve.

General visiting hours

General visiting hours are 7:30 am – 8:30 pm.

Visitors may stay beyond these hours – please speak to the patient’s nurse about your request. For the privacy and safety of all our patients, visitors are not permitted to linger in unit hallways.  Please make yourself comfortable in the patient’s room or the family waiting areas.

During Labour and Birth

Our staff will make every effort to accommodate the wishes of the patient regarding number of visitors during labour and/or birth. Be aware however that visiting may need to be limited based on the care needs of the patient.

Obstetrical Triage Unit & Postoperative Recovery Room

Due to very limited space, only one visitor is permitted at the bedside at a time.  No children please.

After Baby Is Born

One designated partner or support person is welcome to stay overnight.  Patients accommodated to a ward or semi-private room must consider the wishes of the other patients in these rooms. 

Your baby must remain with the person(s) wearing your baby’s matching ID band at all times.

Children

Children are welcome to visit.  For their safety and protection, please be advised that all children under the age of 12 yrs. must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.  The adult must be someone other than the patient.

Family Waiting Areas

There are designated waiting areas for family and visitors located:

  • Outside 4D-CHILDBIRTH
  • In the corridor between the NICU and 4D-CHILDBIRTH

When your visitors arrive, they will have to speak with childbirth reception staff by using the phone located on the wall outside the unit. Staff will help your visitors locate you.
