HMH has contracted with Bella Baby Photography to capture your newborn’s photo. There is no need to arrange your photo-shoot ahead of time. Bella Baby Photography will come to each room to offer you one of our artistic Bella Baby sittings. Your professional mini photo-shoot will take place right in the comfort of your hospital room. Friends and family are welcomed to stay to view this special rite of passage. Our photographers will photograph your baby and post photos to our custom online slide show for you to view just minutes after your session. Online viewing and ordering is available for 2 weeks to anyone with whom you choose to share your password.
Tips for a Great Photo Shoot
Bring your favorite baby blanket or afghan from home for use in the photo shoot. A beautiful blanket can add texture, color and memories to your newborn's photo.
- We love to include parent's hands in our photos. Wear clear or neutral polish on the day of your shoot. We want your baby to be the focus of the photos.
- Bring a solid black, brown or grey shirt or cami for you to wear in photos. We may photograph your baby in your arms. These colors look great in both color and black and white prints.
Your baby’s photo can be posted on www.hmh.net’s “BirthPlace Online Nursery” website. The web postings are free and will be posted to our Online Nursery with your written permission.

According to the March of Dimes, roughly 135 Kentucky babies are born preterm each week. This means that nearly 13 percent of all babies born in the Commonwealth are delivered before 37 weeks gestation.
Premature babies may have more health problems and may need to stay in the hospital longer than babies born later. They also may have long-term health problems that can affect their whole lives.
In honor of HMH’s participation in the upcoming March of Dimes event in Hardin County on April 30, we are sharing the story of the Wallace Family and their time at HMH’s Level II NICU.
“It was the worst experience to have a sick baby, but HMH has the most wonderful people there to take care of you,” said mother of five, Brooke Wallace. “HMH was the right place with the right people on the right days for our family.”
