Maternal & Child Program

The Maternal & Child Program at Joseph Brant Hospital is dedicated to providing care to pregnant women, infants and children up to the age of 18 years. We believe in family-centred care, which means that our patients are partners in care.

The Maternal & Child Program has inpatient and outpatient care services. All services are located on Level 2 of the North tower.

For general hospital information, please see the JBH Patient and Family Guide.

Essential Care Partners (ECPs) and Visitors

The Maternal & Child Program welcomes Essential Care Partners 24 hours a day. ECPs are different than visitors; they are people who the patient feels are important to their well-being and care. ECPs enhance the hospital experience and contribute positively to a patient's healing process. Often, the ECP is a parent, partner or spouse.

Visitors are family members or friends who visit for social reasons. Please speak with the patient, ECP or health care team to identify a suitable time to visit. We want to make sure new mothers, babies and children have time to focus on their care, rest and recovery. Visitors may be asked to leave the room in order for our team to provide care to our patients.

It is recommended that children under the age of 16 do not visit the Maternal & Child Program unless they are a sibling (vaccinations must be up-to-date).

Infection Prevention 

Joseph Brant Hospital (JBH) is committed to providing a safe environment for patients, families, visitors and staff. Please do not visit the hospital if you are feeling unwell.

Proof of Vaccination

Please do not visit the Maternal & Child Program if you have not been vaccinated. Children and adolescents under the age of 16 must provide proof of vaccinations before visiting the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
