Taking care of mother and baby
The birth of your baby marks the beginning of an incredible new journey. Norton Healthcare provides personalized postpartum care to ensure a healthy and happy transition from hospital to home — for both mom and baby.
In addition to addressing your physical needs after birth, we offer breastfeeding support, help with finding a pediatrician, new parent classes and other postpartum resources.
Services available for you and baby during your stay
Postpartum care. Our team will make sure you’re healing properly after childbirth. We’ll also ask how you’re feeling emotionally and can provide additional resources, such as mental health services.
Breastfeeding support. Norton Healthcare offers comprehensive resources to help you build a good breastfeeding relationship with your baby — both in the hospital and once you’re home.
Newborn care. Immediately after delivery, our team will assess your baby’s health and perform routine tests. Other procedures, such as a hearing test and hepatitis B vaccine, will be administered before baby goes home.
Neonatal intensive care. The neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) at Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital and Norton Children’s Hospital have specialized staff and technology for babies who need advanced care.
Ongoing support. Norton Healthcare provides outpatient resources such as New Mommy 101, a group where you can get advice on parenting and newborn care, and eCare Breastfeeding Support.
