Myrtue Medical's Birthing Center is open for visitation.

We observe quiet time from 2 PM to 4 PM every day on the Birthing Center floor so mothers and babies can bond and rest in a peaceful environment. We encourage visitors to arrange different hours to visit the new little one.

One thing we like to remind all expectant parents and visitors is the importance of washing hands. Newborns are still developing their immune systems, so you should always wash your hands before touching a new baby and avoid kissing them on the face. Even a small cold for an adult can turn into a serious health concern for a baby.
