The BMC Postpartum Unit strives to be a welcoming environment where postpartum people and their families are respected and valued, regardless of gender identity and/or sexual identity. We are proud that BMC is a World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF-designated Baby Friendly hospital, which recognizes our excellence in providing evidence-based care and education while respecting individual preferences.

Our state of-the-art unit supports each postpartum person and their family’s individualized goals and journey around newborn feeding, rooming-in, bonding, and medical care. We care for both you and your baby in your postpartum room to enhance bonding and offer opportunities for continuous learning.

We also offer families specialized support and care during their time with us on the postpartum unit, whether due to fetal or neonatal loss, a NICU stay for your infant, or other health and safety reasons.
