Postpartum & Discharge

Congratulations! You have welcomed a new baby into the world. You can expect to be discharged between 24 and 48 hours after giving birth. At GRMC, you can relax knowing you will receive the support and quality care you need to help adjust to changes that will take place.

We highly encourage your baby to stay with you during your time at our Birthing Center and encourage you to hold your baby, skin-to-skin, throughout your time here. Babies kept near their mother tend to feed and sleep better, cry less, and remain healthier overall. Additionally, keeping your baby with you will allow you to learn your babies cues and help you feel more confident when going home.
