The Experience of a Lifetime

Many women are introduced to River Oaks Hospital for the first time through the birth of a child. Over 1,200 babies make their arrival each year in The Baby Suites at River Oaks, one of Jackson's first family-centered birthing centers. From the day their doctor gives them the good news, to the day their baby is born, patients receive a special brand of pampering that is unique to our hospital. Patients have come to rely on the excellent care, privacy and personal attention they receive at River Oaks during this special time in their life.

The Baby Suites at River Oaks contain LDR suites, where labor, delivery and recovery all occur in a comfortable, homelike setting. The Baby Suites offer rooming-in, which allows mother and baby to remain in the same room until they are discharged.

The Baby Suites is equipped with the latest in technology and highly trained physicians and nurses, including neonatologists and a Level II neonatal intensive care unit. From the moment they arrive, patients experience a special kind of care that continues until they leave with their newborn. Our physicians and the staffs of Labor and Delivery, Postpartum and Nursery work together as one team to give patients the experience of a lifetime.

The Baby Suites is staffed by breastfeeding specialists (nurses specializing in breastfeeding) to assist patients with infant care and breastfeeding. We encourage breastfeeding and will do everything possible to make this a positive experience for you and your baby. The breastfeeding specialists visit all mothers within the first 24 hours after delivery and, along with the nursing staff, are available to help you with breastfeeding techniques and various aspects of your infant's care (holding, feeding, bathing and dressing). In addition to assisting with breastfeeding and infant care while patients are in the hospital, the breastfeeding specialists are available after patients are discharged to answer any questions.
