The day your baby is born should be one of the happiest of your lives. But if everything doesn't go quite right and your baby needs extra-special care, you want the confidence and comfort that comes with outstanding clinical expertise.
At The BirthPlace at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital, your newborn will be in good hands in a Level II neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The NICU can provide specialized care for premature infants, including multiples, starting at 32 weeks gestation as well as full-term babies who may need the following types of care:
- Monitoring for apnea conditions and need support for breathing issues
- IVs or special medications
- An incubator or other assistance to maintain proper body temperature
- Feeding assistance
Our expert staff includes a neonatal nurse practitioner and respiratory therapist who are in the hospital 24 hours a day, every day. 24/7. This care can be essential for some infants born at higher altitude who might have trouble breathing.
While our clinical team will provide the specialized health care that your baby needs to thrive, you also play an important role. We strive to provide the opportunity for as much skin-to-skin contact between you and your baby as possible, helping to soothe both baby and parents.
