Bonding with your baby and learning his or her early habits is an important part of the birthing experience.

That’s why Augusta University Medical Center offers a special kind of nursing call Mother Baby Couplet Care. One nurse will car for both you and your baby, and your baby can stay in the room with you as much as you like. But when you need rest, the baby can be cared for in the nursery.

Mother Baby Couplet Care ensures that the mother, baby and family spend as much time together as possible. It allows mothers to learn as much about their baby’s sleeping and feeding habits as possible, and it fosters early bonding.
