Mother Baby Care

Mother/Baby Care

Phoebe’s Mother/Baby unit at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital provides recovery and postpartum services to help mothers and their babies following delivery, and after they arrive home.

Mothers get the latest instructions on baby care and they’re encouraged to ask questions during their stay.

Mother/Baby care services include:

  • Hands-on baby care instruction
  • Professional nursing assistance
  • Baby care procedure demonstrations

We encourage mothers to choose breastfeeding. A lactation consultant is available to assist with:

  • Breast care
  • Breastfeeding
  • Options for pumping

All of these in-unit services help new mothers leave the hospital with the confidence to care for their newborn.
