All new parents are provided a HALO SleepSack® that gets sent home with them at discharge to be used to safely put their newborns to sleep. Your BirthCare Center staff will spend time with you on how to use the HALO SleepSack® and other important safe-sleep precautions. Not only does the HALO SleepSack® help your baby sleep safer, it helps him/her sleep better too.

You’ll be on your way to teaching your child the importance of life-long wellness visits.
