Going Home - After Baby

Before you leave, you will be given an appointment for your baby’s check up with the pediatrician at his or her office. As a courtesy, breastfeeding moms may be given an appointment to return to the hospital in three days to have their babies screened for jaundice and proper weight gain. If you have any concerns before your return visit, please call and our newborn nursery staff will help you.

For Unmarried Parents

Our staff will help you, at no cost, complete the Paternity Establishment form.
