By incorporating the latest research on prenatal and infant care including the benefits of skin-to-skin contact, breastfeeding and other essential techniques into our services, Woman & Newborn Services at East Jefferson General Hospital ensures the best possible health for newborns and their mothers.
Building the Bonds of Motherhood
East Jefferson General Hospital now stands among the leading hospitals in America in promoting rooming in, skin-to-skin and other programs designed to strengthen the immediate bonds between mother and child.
Recent studies have shown strong benefits to both the mother and the baby if they spend time with one another and touching rather than housing the baby in a nursery and allowing them to "visit" with mommy occasionally throughout the day.
That is why you will find our new baby nursery either mostly, or entirely empty. Those babies are where they belong, and want to be...with mommy!
Every patient experience is absolutely crucial to each East Jefferson General Hospital ob/gyn. Metairie soon-to-be mothers and expecting mothers from New Orleans, The North Shore, Jefferson Parish, and the surrounding River Parishes prefer the specialized treatment at our family & maternity care center.
