Postpartum care in South Denver

At Sky Ridge Medical Center in South Denver, we understand your experience does not end after you give birth to your baby, so neither do our services. Following childbirth, you and your baby are transitioned to a private mom-baby room where we continue to care for you and your baby during your hospital stay.

For more information about Sky Ridge Medical Center's postpartum care services, please call our women's coordinator at (720) 225-4111.

Helpful hints after baby arrives

Your baby has arrived! What a joyous moment for you both. As you navigate through this new time you may questions, we are here for you.

While you are in the mom-baby unit, you have access to:

  • "At your request" meal service featuring chef-prepared meals delivered to your room
  • Bella Baby Photography sessions
  • Breastfeeding support from certified lactation consultants
  • Complimentary afternoon tea service and a "baby" bundt cake

Breastfeeding support

If you choose to breastfeed, our team is here to support you and your baby. We have certified lactation consultants available to help and counsel you during your stay.

We also offer a Breastfeeding Support Group led by certified lactation consultants. The support group meets every Wednesday and Friday from 9:30am to 10:30am. The group is designed for moms and babies from birth to eight weeks old. There is no cost to attend this support group and drop-ins are welcome.

For lactation support or questions about our Breastfeeding Support Group, please call our lactation line at (720) 225-2233.

Newborn photography

If you choose to take advantage of our photography service, your professional photo shoot will take place in the comfort of your hospital room. The photographers of Baby Bella Photography will take pictures of your baby and post the photos to a custom online slideshow for your viewing. Online viewing and ordering is available for two weeks to anyone with whom you choose to share your password.
