At Munroe's Maternity unit, we appreciate the opportunity to serve you and hope to exceed your expectations of the memorable event!
You and your baby may welcome family and friends from 11:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. An adult friend or family member is welcome to stay with you in our private rooms. Please request linens for the sleeper sofa from the staff.
Siblings are encouraged to visit with mom and baby during regular visiting hours. Please provide adult supervision for small siblings. Children under the age of 12 may not spend the night.
To provide an opportunity for moms to take a much deserved rest, we strive to keep intrusions to a minimum between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. During this exciting time, a steady influx of visitors is quite common; we will help you in any way possible to get the rest and private time you need. Please let the staff know if you want to take advantage of "nap time."
Meal times are approximately 7:30 a.m., and 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Please check with your nurse about meal selections.
For your newborn's safety, your baby will be given only to people with the appropriate arm band and nursery security card. You may keep your baby in the room with you as much as you desire, or have your baby brought to you at feeding times and upon request. Please do not leave your baby alone - call the Nursery at x5090 or notify a staff member of OB/GYN if you need some personal time for showering, walking, napping, etc.
Please have car seat properly installed in your vehicle before mom and baby go home. If you require assistance, please contact the Ocala Police Department.
