REX Women's Center Visitation Policy

Laboring mothers may designate one (1) birth partner. The birth partner will be designated until discharge. A certified doula may accompany a laboring mother if that is a part of the birth plan. The Doula must present a proof of certification to the L&D RN.

For babies taken to the NICU, both the birth parent and another visitor is allowed while the birth parent is hospitalized. Once the birth parent is discharged, both parents/guardians can continue to visit.

Surrogates may have a birthing partner, as outlined above. It is not required to be one of the child's parents. Once the baby is delivered, the baby may have 1 parent/guardian present.

The birth partner is only allowed to leave the building once in a 24 hour period after the patient is admitted. They should bring both their labor and postpartum bag with them into the hospital.
