The caregivers at Sanpete Valley Hospital use research-based practices to care for the health safety of moms and newborns after birth. Our Labor Delivery Recovery Postpartum (LDRP) suites allow you to stay in the same room during your post-partum care, which makes it more comfortable and allows for mom/baby bonding time.
Care for Mom
Our team works to meet your needs regarding your care, pain management, and the care of your baby. Please let us know about any preferences you have and we'll work to accommodate your needs. During your stay, we provide:
- Room service meal delivery
- Breastfeeding support
- Education resources to help you care for yourself and your baby
- Accommodations for your support person to stay overnight with you
Breastfeeding Education and Support
All of the nurses in our Women and Newborn department have been trained to provide breastfeeding support once baby arrives. Additionally, we have a Certified Lactation Counselor available to consult with moms, answer questions, and demonstrate techniques to help make breastfeeding a positive experience for both you and your baby.
Care for Baby
Because our top priority is the health and well-being of both mom and baby, we promote skin-to-skin and breastfeeding within the first hour of life. To continue this parental bonding, and enhance breastfeeding efforts, we also encourage healthy moms and babies to enjoy rooming in. Rooming in helps mom and baby become better acquainted. Our caregivers in the nursery are always available if you need to rest, or if your baby needs additional medical attention. Our nursery is located close by, across from the nurses' station.
Neonatal TeleHealth Services
Should your little one need emergent care, our hospital utilizes Neonatal Telehealth Services that directly connect to neonatologists at Utah Valley Hospital. Using real-time web camera systems, our team of nurses, physicians, and respiratory therapists can communicate with the specialists and receive direction on what care will be best for the baby.
Newborn Screening Tests
During their stay, our smallest patients receive a group of tests, called newborn screening tests. Numerous studies have shown these procedures can protect your baby’s health and well-being today and in the future. Because of this, these screenings/treatments are routine for all newborns at all Intermountain hospitals (and some are required by state law).
