Post Delivery in HospitalAfter labor is over and the umbilical cord is cut, your baby is taken to a warmer in the delivery room. The initial Apgar score is given, baby is given a bracelet that matches yours and prints are made for security. Baby will stick around in the delivery room for just a bit, barring any complications, then he moves to the nursery. In the nursery, nurses and doctors perform preliminary tests and provide preliminary care. After you've recovered enough to care for baby, he will be brought to your room for breastfeeding, bottle feeding and other care until you both are discharged.

If there is a complication or baby needs more intense care, many hospitals have a NICU department. NICU is the neonatal intensive care unit.
