Newborn Follow Up Services
OCH offers newborn follow-up services two days after discharge. Located on the fourth floor, newborn follow-ups help ensure your baby gets the best start in this world!
The check-up includes a full assessment by a certified well-baby registered nurse. Along with screenings for jaundice and consultations with a lactation specialist, weight assessments are performed to ensure the newborn is getting the proper hydration and nutrients. For some babies, the check-up includes a second hearing test.
OCH also offers a cradle-call helpline 24/7 to answer questions about your newborn; to speak to a nurse, call 662-615-2940.
