Babies are our most precious assets, and keeping them safe and
secure is of utmost importance. The Lakewood Family Birthplace has a
state-of the art infant security system that includes:
Abduction prevention, which monitors all routes leading away
Automatic linking of mother and infant, which prevents the possibility
of mistaken identity.
Additionally, TMC Lakewood’s security staff is on-site around the clock
and makes frequent rounds/security checks on the unit.
This is a joyous time in your life. We encourage your family to be
involved in your delivery experience. At TMC Lakewood, we believe dads are
important, too, and they are welcome to visit any time. We also have
generous visiting hours for siblings, extended family and friends after your
baby is born.
Since we want to help keep your newborn healthy and happy, we encourage
visitors who are not well to delay their visit. And, to help you
continue to feel your best, we recommend visits be limited to 30 minutes to
allow for as much rest as possible.
