After being discharged from the hospital, you and your baby may be asked to return to Baptist for a Newborn Clinic visit before your first appointment with your selected pediatrician. Within a few days after discharge, babies are seen in the Newborn Clinic for any of the following concerns: jaundice, prematurity, breastfeeding concerns, weight follow-up or discharge from the hospital before the baby reached 48 hours of age.
A Newborn Clinic visit is an excellent opportunity to get all your baby questions answered once you and your baby have been home for a few days. A nurse will assess your baby, obtain appropriate history, measurements, lab data and discuss your baby with the on-call neonatologist. There is a charge for this visit that may or may not be covered by your insurance.
