Our Departments



After you have delivered your baby, you and your baby stay together in the same room in the postpartum unit of the hospital’s birthing center. This encourages the frequent feeding and physical contact your new baby needs at this time.

It is also an opportunity to get to know your new baby and become comfortable with basic baby care. During your stay you will have a nursing staff committed to helping breastfeeding mothers get the best possible start. The nursing staff at Cheshire Medical Center is experienced and knowledgeable and will assist you with these early feedings. A lactation consultant will visit with you during your stay to help get you started on breastfeeding and ensure that all questions and concerns are addressed.

We encourage you to ask questions and seek assistance with feedings while you are in the hospital.
