Your Baby Moon

Meeting Your Baby:


Bonding is one of the most sacred transitions between mother and baby.  Our team respects your time to bond and nurture the new baby in the family.  Each family is given the opportunity to spend time together without separation.  During the first few hours mom and baby are closely monitored for continued health and wellness, all infant assessments are done while mom or family holds the baby.  After you and your baby have nursed, we will do a full physical examination of your baby right on the bed next to you.

We do recommend a visit to your chosen pediatrician within 72 hours of the birth, which can be scheduled at your convenience. We will contact your pediatrician and share your records with them for continued care of your baby. Options for hearing screening and immunizations an be discussed and reviewed with your pediatrician.  Vitamin K and erythromycin eye ointment are available for your baby if you so choose.



Your first postpartum will be 24-48 hours after the birth of your baby. Your visit will consist of:

  • Processing of birth certificate and social security card

  • Physical exam for mother and baby

  • Metabolic Screening (PKU)

  • Critical Congenital Heart Defect Screening (CCHD) 

Over the 6-8 weeks following your baby’s birth we will:​

  • Discuss your birth experience

  • Provide you with family planning options

  • Provide postpartum support, counsel, and care

  • Offer breastfeeding support

  • Infant weight checks
