Mother-Baby Unit

Visitor Restrictions: We have a no-visitor policy in place, with limited exceptions for specific patient situations. Although we deeply regret the anxiety that these rules create for our patients and their families, we believe this policy is necessary to keep our patients, team, and community safe from COVID-19. Exceptions will be made for ONE support person for Labor & Delivery.
If an exception is made for a visitor (must be the same visitor throughout the patient’s stay), they will have to pass a temperature and respiratory screen. Family and loved ones looking for patients can call (559) 624-2000 for patient updates. Click HERE for more details on our visitor guidelines.

Patients will be transferred to the Mother-Baby unit approximately two hours after the birth of a new baby.

mom and baby with nurseKaweah Health recognizes and agrees with all Mother and Baby organizations that Breastfeeding for at least the first six months of life provides the greatest health benefits for both mother and baby. We are dedicated in providing support and education for any mother who feels she needs this information. We can provide these services before the birth of your baby, while in the hospital, and even after you go home through our Lactation services. We believe that every baby deserves every chance to start life in such a way to provide the best environment for a long healthy life. We are Brain Friendly, Every Baby, Every Time. To help babies transition into life outside of the womb, we follow up-to-date research which includes skin to skin contact and delayed bathing.

Professional photography services are available through Blue Daisy Baby Photography. View the packages available HERE and view our Online Nursery HERE. Special care is given by our staff to educate new parents about taking care of their new baby. Parents will be instructed and provided materials to assure they feel comfortable caring for their baby prior to discharge.
