Babyland Express Short-Stay Program


The birth of a baby is a very precious and personal moment.  TCMH has designed a program that allows you to choose in advance the length of stay that fits your personal needs and desires regarding the birth of your baby.  Enrollment in this program assures the prospective parents a cost-effective means of handling their financial arrangements prior to the birth of their baby.
