“A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.”~ Eda J. Le Shan
Once your baby is born, an infant risk screen will be completed before your baby leaves the hospital. The risk screen helps us see any if there are any risks that you should be aware of that could impact your baby’s health. If a risk is identified, you can enroll in the Healthy Start program and connect with one of our Care Coordinators. Your care coordinator will work with you and your family in whatever ways that you need. This can include walking you through how to care for a newborn to assisting you with successful breastfeeding.
