Maternity visitation policy

About visitors and visiting hours
To provide greater security for our maternity patients and their babies, all maternity visitors must sign in before visiting mothers and babies.

You may have visitors at any time, and you decide who may visit you and your baby. Please note that many of our hospitals have “quiet times” for brief periods during the day. We ask that you limit guests during this time to allow all families with time for peaceful rest and recovery. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your nurse.

Children may participate in the hospital experience and hold the new baby if you wish. For privacy and safety of all our patients, we ask visitors to remain in the maternity center lobby when they are not visiting you in your suite.

After 9 p.m., visitors should be quiet and respectful of others’ need for rest. Please have no visitors who are ill or who have recently been exposed to a communicable disease. Everyone — including you — should wash their hands before touching the baby.

Visitors may bring or send small gifts, flowers and mylar balloons. All Providence facilities are smoke-free, and  latex-reduced environments.
