What to expect
Having a baby is an unforgettable experience. Learn what to expect from when you learn you're pregnant to how fathers and partners can be involved.
Good Samaritan Medical Center was the first hospital in Colorado to be named Baby-Friendly. Baby-Friendly is a designation given by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF to hospitals that support moms to be successful in whatever their feeding choice may be. Our staff teaches and helps moms whether their goal is to breastfeed or formula feed their babies.
Another benefit of being a Baby-Friendly hospital is having your baby in the room with you, except for medical reasons. Research shows that moms and babies sleep better when they stay together.
It’s only natural to worry when you’re suddenly in charge of the health of another human being, but most pregnancies go off without a hitch.
If something does happen in those nine months that puts you or your baby at a higher risk for complications, you’ll have access to high-risk pregnancy specialists, additional fetal testing and a neonatal intensive care unit NICU).
Adults have adult intensive care units (ICUs), children have pediatric ICUs and premature or babies with health issues have neonatal ICUs. If your little one needs extra medical attention after birth, he or she will be taken to the NICU to be cared for by neonatologists, nurse practitioners and nurses trained in caring for newborns with special needs.
- Post-delivery support classes: New parents have a lot of questions, and at Good Samaritan Medical Center, we have answers. After you have your baby, you can join a couple of support groups, including New Moms Network or Breastfeeding Moms Group.
- Nursing Nook: If you’d like to purchase a breast pump or other essential baby items, look no further than our Nursing Nook specialty store. It offers premium products chosen by lactation specialists that are sold at or below the prices of big-box retailers. Items purchased from the Nursing Nook also supports our Lactation Program, which is part of our Baby-Friendly Certification. Download a Nursing Nook coupon.
- Baby's First Ride: Did you know that 80 to 90 percent of car seats are installed incorrectly? Before you place your most precious cargo into your vehicle, we’ll have a nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technician check the installation of your car seat for free. Call the Baby's First Ride reservation line at 303-908-8326 to make an inspection appointment before you deliver or early in your stay after birth.
- Take-home meal: No one wants to cook when they get home from the hospital, so we’ll take care of it. Leave the hospital with a free meal, and take advantage of more time to relax with your baby.
