Healthy Babies

At Mercy Birthplace, we're dedicated to healthy mothers and babies. That's why we have programs in place to keep you and your baby healthy and safe:

  • A NICU nurse attends every birth at Mercy as a precaution
  • Mercy was the first healthcare organization in the Cedar Rapids area to offer immunization "cocooning" to give newborn babies an extra layer of protection from whooping cough.
  • All babies born at Mercy sleep in HALO® Sleep Sack® swaddle wearable blankets while at Mercy. Remember, safe sleep is as easy as A-B-C.
