Couplet Care

Couplet Care at El Centro Regional Medical Center
ECRMC's Maternity and Child services provides family-centered care (also known as couplet care), in which mother, baby and support person stay together from childbirth to discharge. Couplet care facilitates family bonding, supports successful breastfeeding and increases patient satisfaction.
 
Couplet Care Begins at the Moment of Birth
As soon as your baby is born, he or she will be dried off and placed in direct contact with you. This initial contact helps your baby regulate his or her breathing, heart rate, temperature and more. Right after birth most babies are very awake and willing to be fed. This is a wonderful time for mother and baby to start learning how to breastfeed.
 
Couplet Care Continues Throughout Your Stay
We minimize maternal-infant separation. You and your baby are cared for together with one nurse caring for the "couplet." Your baby stays in your hospital room, even at night. We encourage all maternity patients to have a support person who can stay with you in your private room.
