Meeting Your Baby for the First Time 

Cadillac Hospital fully supports the “Golden Hour” of life. The first hour of your baby’s life is a very special time for parents and baby to bond, and for your baby to transition to life outside of the womb. It is a time to enjoy your baby’s natural instinctive behaviors and establish the first feeding. You are welcome to invite anyone you choose to join you in that special first hour, or keep this time just for you and the baby’s father.

Queen’s Meal

Celebrate the birth of your baby with a gourmet meal. You and a guest may enjoy this special meal together, compliments of our nursing staff. Or, if you prefer, you may choose a lovely fruit basket to enjoy at home.
