Pregnancy: Winnie Palmer Hospital Tour
Time for a little adventure.
We finally had the opportunity to tour the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies. To be honest, I tried to put myself in check prior to the tour because I did not want to arrive with high expectations.
You’re probably wondering why. Simply put…I did not want to be let down or disappointed if the tour did not go well. since I am a planner, I decided to schedule the tour a month before my due date.
When it comes to hospital tours, the time slots can fill up fast and you want to make sure you know what to expect prior to delivery. The hubs and I met at the hospital that morning and checked in at the registrations desk. Afterward, we were directed to sit at a designated table that was for maternity tours only.
At first, I thought we were the only ones going on the tour. But, eventually, more moms-to-be showed up. There were a few moms touring the hospital solo due to their partners having to work. Then there was a couple there expecting twins! It was funny because the mom’s name was also Tiffany. I really loved that they kept the tourn group small because we were able to really connect with each other and have a great time on the tour.
Winnie Palmer Hosptial-The Tour
The blogger in me couldn’t help but film some footage of the hospital tour. To be honest, I felt so awkward recording because I didn’t want to violate anyone’s privacy. So I tried my best just to get a few clips and I did a recap in the car. Everything was cool until I got in trouble for filming the nursery area. Luckily, there were no babies in there at the time.
Once everyone arrived, our tour guide led us upstairs and asked us to fill out a survey on the iPad. Then we all introduced ourselves and our due date if this was our first child and the name for the baby. I think I was the only one there who was not finding out the gender. I thought it was a great ice breaker for all of us.
After the introductions were complete we then ventured off to the Labor & Delivery floor. Our tour guide was so informative. She walked us through the entire process and she even catered to the ones like me who were having a repeat c-section.
Overall, I felt really good about the tour and the amenities that the Winnie Palmer Hospital has to offer. I was able to complete my registration paperwork while I was there. By doing this, I don’t have to worry about it on the day of delivery. Be sure to check out my Hosptial Tour video for more of my opinion on the tour.
