Maternity Care at Palos

When you're expecting a baby, you have many decisions to make. One of the most important is where to deliver your child. At Palos Hospital, we can help you start — or add to — your family in a safe, comfortable and caring environment. We consider it a privilege to be a part of your baby's birth day.

Our philosophy of care is family-centered. From the moment of birth, we give parents the opportunity to bond with their infant and to form a close family connection. At Palos, we celebrate the Golden Hour starting from birth with skin-to-skin contact for the first hour of the newborn's life. This allows new parents get to know and bond with their baby. Other family members are welcome to visit following the Golden Hour after mom and baby have had time to rest from the big event.
