as much as possible and send your baby back to the nursery when needed.

proper identification is checked each time we bring you your baby.
Bryn Mawr Hospital wishes to thank you for choosing us as the place to
start your family and for allowing us the opportunity to provide you
with a memorable experience at this important time in you life.
