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.
The Babyland Express program covers hospital-based charges and services including:

•Staff trained in breast feeding support
•Individual education regarding care of mother and baby after delivery
And adding that extra special touch for your extra special needs:
•A private celebration dinner for you and a guest before going home
•24-hour breast-feeding assistance by a Certified Breast Feeding Educator while in the hospital as well as after returning home.
