Newborn Care

Nurse-midwives provide skilled and compassionate care to newborns as well as their mothers. After transitioning on your chest and breastfeeding is complete, your midwife will thoroughly examine your baby. With your permission she will administer newborn medications including antibiotic eye ointment and Vitamin K injection. One of our seasoned birth center RNs will come to your home within 24 hours to complete a full assessment on mother and baby. Both mother and baby will be examined at our office three days following birth to assess for physical and emotional wellbeing.
