Couplet Care

At Spring Valley we support couplet care, which gives you, your baby and family members a private, comforting place to bond for the extent of your hospital stay. This service is available for both natural and cesarean deliveries. The first few hours following birth are important to your baby’s development. Medical staff uses this time to initiate skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding if you so choose. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding can offer many benefits:

  • Allows your baby to get familiar with your voice, your smell and your face
  • Breastfeeding lowers the risk of illness for both mother and baby as they age
  • Mothers who breastfeed can recover quicker from childbirth
  • Breastfeeding can save you money on formula expenses

Couplet care also gives you a chance to receive special attention from the knowledgeable nurses while at the hospital. They can educate you and your family about important infant-care methods, such as your baby’s sleep patterns, breathing sounds and eating habits. The dialogue is open and gives you the chance to ask questions and communicate freely with medical professionals.

Benefits of couplet care can include:

  • A caring atmosphere, focusing on your baby’s development
  • The involvement from your partner and family members
  • Having your baby close to your bedside at all times
  • Time to get to know your baby’s personality and patterns
  • Valuable resources for educational information

Mothers and families who’ve taken advantage of couplet care often leave the hospital with less anxiety and the confidence to start caring for their baby.
