Postpartum care

After your baby is born, recovering and bonding with your new child is of the utmost importance. Our commitment is to put you and your baby first while providing care for all your post-pregnancy needs.

Postpartum care and support in Central Denver

We believe postpartum support is just as essential as the compassionate, quality care you receive during labor and delivery.

The Rose Babies team at Rose Women's Hospital continues to care for you and your baby by providing comprehensive postpartum services in our secure mom/baby unit. After you go home, our services also continue with breastfeeding advice, support groups and urogynecology care.

Expert advice, available 24/7

Free medical advice is just a phone call away. Our nurses help you understand your symptoms, treatment options and procedures. They will also help you find a provider or specialist and schedule an appointment.

Our postpartum services

Well-baby nursery

Rose Babies is home to a state-of-the-art well-baby nursery. Following delivery, some new parents don’t want to let their newborn out of their sight, while others like to have time to rest and recuperate before heading home with their new baby. Our beautiful well-baby nursery, directly adjacent to the mom/baby nurses station, is a place where your baby will be safe and comfortable while the family gets some rest. This nursery also has a dedicated room for elective circumcisions. This space is secured and locked so you can rest assured that you and your baby are safe and being taken care by our experienced mom/baby nurses.

Neonatal intensive care

For babies that need a little extra care after birth, we provide a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Our NICU was named the #1 NICU in HCA Healthcare for nursing excellence.

Safety for moms and babies

As Denver's "Baby Hospital," our smallest patients are our top priority. For the safety of our newborns and their parents, we offer the following safety measures:

  • Each baby has an anklet that triggers an alarm if tampered with or if your baby is taken outside the secure area
  • You and your birthing partner will receive baby "bracelets"; infant security bands are monitored 24/7
  • You are encouraged to accompany your baby for any procedures, such as weight checks
  • Rooming in is highly encouraged so your baby is with you as much as possible
  • All hospital staff are trained regularly on security procedures
  • The entire floor is restricted and requires badge access
  • There is always a security officer on duty
  • All visitors are required to provide photo identification and to pass through a metal detector
  • Security cameras are monitored at all times by security and the nurses' station

Postpartum support after discharge

Our postpartum support does not end after you are discharged. Our team offers a variety of support services to help you once you are home with your baby.

Lactation help and breastfeeding support groups

Get answers to your breastfeeding questions within 24 hours through our lactation helpline (303) 320-2001. You can also attend our weekly breastfeeding support group, Rose Mamas TLC (The Lactation Club), Mondays from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. Space is limited, so registration is required.

Postpartum mental wellness

Depression and anxiety are the most common complications after pregnancy. Parents of every culture, age, income level and race can develop perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Symptoms can appear at any time during pregnancy through the first 12 months after childbirth. If left untreated, symptoms can last for years, but effective treatment options are available. The sooner you get help, the sooner you will feel like yourself again. To learn more about symptoms and treatment options, visit the Postpartum Support International website and / or the Postpartum Support International directory to find a qualified perinatal mental health professional in your area and insurance network.

Urogynecology care

Our hospital offers excellent urogynecology care for post-pregnancy conditions, such as urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, which many women experience after childbirth. The gynecologists at our women's hospital offer effective and minimally invasive pelvic floor treatments and therapies. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable by educating you about your condition and helping you find relief from your symptoms.
