Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

At Sanford Birth Center we offer specialized care for babies who are born premature or with medical complications. Our neonatal intensive care team committed to providing you and your little one the highest quality care. The Sanford Birth Center staff is here to help not only your infant, but you and your family as well. We encourage you to spend as much time as you wish with your baby and participate in his or her care.

Sanford Birth Center has a Level 3B NICU which means we care for infants less than 28 weeks (seven months) gestation and less than 1000 grams (three pounds).

Breastfeeding Your Premature Baby

Giving birth to a premature or other high-risk baby (or babies) does not mean you cannot breastfeed. Actually, the opposite may be the case.
