Newborn Information

Exams and checkups for newborns, or newborn care exams, will regularly be conducted, especially during the first year of life. The first exam will take place shortly after birth. The newborn care exam will likely be scheduled 1-3 days following the infant’s return home.

Our providers will also provide information about normal growth, nutrition, sleep, safety, illnesses, and other important health care facts.
