Anticipating the birth of your baby is a very exciting time and there are many
things to take care of before the big day. Our preregistration process allows
you to take care of the details of your hospital stay in advance. Let us know
if your doctor or midwife have any special delivery wishes and we will do our
best to honor them. We recommend that you pre-register approximately two months
prior to giving birth.
The labor and delivery rooms at TGH allow you to remain in one room during the
birth process. Up to two support people are welcome to be by your side during
this very special time.
Following delivery, you’ll be resting in the post partum unit where your baby can stay with you in your room, but the nursery is always available. Our healthcare professionals are happy to answer your
questions and a lactation consultant is available to assist with breastfeeding.
