Taking a new baby home can be both exciting and a little intimidating, especially for first-time parents.
You've just given birth, and now you're home with a million questions about your baby.
That's where EvergreenHealth's Postpartum Care Center comes in.
Our staff is here to help you make the transition from the hospital to home easily and safely.
All new parents leave the hospital with a Postpartum Care Center appointment scheduled three-to-four days out.
Our nurse specialist will examine both mom and baby to make sure they are mending and thriving.
If a problem is identified, the nurse specialist will contact your baby's care provider right away.
This is also an opportunity to ask any questions that have popped up since you took your baby home.
After your visit, you'll be reassured that your baby is healthy and that you are on the mend.
Postpartum Care Center services are available to all families, whether they gave birth at EvergreenHealth or elsewhere.
The visit's fee is minimal, and may be covered by your health insurance.
