Postpartum Suite

Postpartum Suite

Postpartum Suite
Our Postpartum Suites give mothers and their newborns a spacious, quiet room that can accommodate one additional person overnight. Baby is primarily cared for in the room with mom and the time mother and baby are apart is minimized. But, nursery care is also available when mom needs a rest. We encourage family and friends, including children, to be present as mom sees fit. Unlike most hospitals, at Shannon, the visiting hours are set by mom.

Parenting Suite
