Newborn Medical Care
Choosing a doctor for your newborn is a big decision. We know new parents have a lot on their minds and may have many questions about newborn medical care. To better familiarize you with the procedures of newborn medical care available at our office, here is a list of services we offers:
Right After Birth
If your child was born at Baptist Nassau, we have already met your newborn. Our practitioners conduct a routine well check on newborns right after birth. This includes a physical examination, activity observation, blood tests, and measurements. We will also discuss any questions or concerns that you may have, explain or review newborn care, as well as recommended best practices when it comes to caring for your newborn.
A follow-up visit takes place around 3-5 days of age. During this visit we will check your baby’s weight, conduct a complete physical examination, and answer any questions or concerns that you may have.
