Tiny Tots Spread Halloween Cheer at St. John's Regional

Today, St. John's Regional Medical Center (SJRMC) staff received a special visit from a group of youngsters. About a dozen children from the hospital's Mom and Tot Support Group dressed in their Halloween costumes to celebrate and spread cheer.

The annual tradition celebrates the season and allows the kids to visit the hospital in which they were born.

The toddler parade was enjoyed by patients, families, and staff members as they passed out candy and goodies to the tiny trick or treaters. Each of the children in the parade were born at SJRMC, as such they paid a special visit to the Labor and Deliver and Mother Infant Units to see the place where came into the world. Many of them were also reunited with the nurses that cared for them during birth. 

The Mom and Tot Support Group meets two to four times a month on Wednesdays and is designed to prepare toddlers for pre-school by continuing social development while also providing moms a space to come together and learn through discussions with peers and a facilitator.

The Maternity and Birth Center at SJRMC offers a family centered approach and combines comfort measures with personalized care and advanced technology. Should your baby need critical care after delivery, a 16-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is available, offering highly specialized care to our tiniest patients.
