Family Centered Delivery

St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital is happy to offer the Family Centered Delivery program to mothers who will have a baby born via cesarean section. Our program gives families the opportunity to experience the special gift of immediate bonding after delivery.

In the Family Centered Delivery program, baby and dad are taken to the OB Suite in our Recovery Room, where they wait to greet mom upon her arrival. Our goal is to facilitate bonding, earlier initiation of breastfeeding and Skin-to-Skin contact for mothers and newborns to ease their adjustments to life outside the womb.

Our Family Centered Delivery program has expanded hours and is able to accommodate most families who deliver via cesarean section.

Placental tissue donation is now available for C-section births. Learn more about donating your placental tissue.

For more information or questions, please call (813) 872-3746.
