High-Risk Infant Follow-up – Expert Care Continues as Your Baby Grows Up
Our care for children often begins even before birth and continues long after the baby leaves The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at The Children’s Hospital at Saint Peter’s University Hospital. When potential problems are detected during pregnancy, perinatologists and neonatologists at Saint Peter’s work together with the mother's obstetrician to create an individualized plan of care. After the baby is born, we work with the family pediatrician or family doctor to make arrangements for any special care the baby may need at home. Our medical and nursing staff works with parents to prepare them for the transition from home to hospital.
Specialists in our Newborn Follow-Up Clinic provides comprehensive, continuing care for babies who are at risk for developmental and neurological problems. Specific services include developmental, hearing, medical and motor evaluations; social work services; and speech and language assessments.
When the time comes to be discharged from the NICU, a nurse reviews the newborn’s care at home, procedures for making follow-up appointments and the discharge process.
