When you hear "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" playing overhead at Cape Coral Hospital, everyone knows that a new life has just entered the world in the Family Birth Suites. Our staff views birth as one of the most important life experiences for every new family. Many of our nurses have been working on this unit since it opened in 1988.

At Cape Coral Hospital, our nursing staff practices the single-room maternity care concept in a welcoming, family-oriented environment. Mother stays in one suite throughout her stay in the hospital.

Women and newborns have the benefit of a state-of-the-art facility and nationally-certified nurses. Cape Coral Hospital Family Birth Suites include beautifully appointed suites with a Jacuzzi tub for hydrotherapy during labor and after you give birth. Birthing balls are available for use in labor, and a high-tech fetal monitoring system allows you to be up and walking during labor. Cape Coral Hospital staff encourages new parents to enjoy the Golden Hour with their newborn where mother and baby enjoy skin-to-skin time in the first hour after birth.

In addition to our family-centered deliveries, we also provide family-centered Cesarean births. Cape Coral Hospital is the home of the Gentle Cesarean where the mother gets to experience skin-to-skin with her healthy newborn right in the operating room. Many of our babies breastfeed right from the start.

All of our nursing staff are certified breastfeeding counselors and are there to help you succeed in breastfeeding 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Cape Coral Hospital is also on the Baby Steps to Baby Friendly journey with the Florida Breastfeeding Coalition. In addition, the Family Birth Suites has a Quiet Time for Mom, Dad and the baby every day between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. where you can catch up on your rest.



Tours of the facilities at the Family Birth Suites at Cape Coral Hospital are offered Monday - Friday, 8 am - 8 pm by appointment only. Call 239-424-2217 to schedule an appointment.
