Hôpital Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins

The unit has 10 birthing rooms where you can cohabit with your newborn child. Your baby will remain with you 24/7.

Every birthing room has an adjustable delivery bed and an armchair or a bench so that your partner can remain with you throughout your stay, both night and day. If you had a C-section, it is strongly recommended that someone stay with you for the first 24 hours after the intervention. The birthing pavilion also has ergonomic stations to facilitate mobility during labour and hence a physiological birth.

In order to help you in your new role, the attending team will provide parental education for your baby's nutrition, care and hygiene.
