What to expect in the hospital
The on-call neonatologist, a newborn specialist, will see your baby in the hospital. These physicians are on staff and are available for deliveries as well as discharging your baby from the hospital.
Before they send you home from the hospital, your baby will be tested for a number of metabolic disorders required by the state of Texas. In addition to the Texas Newborn Metabolic Screening, there is also a Baylor supplemental newborn screen available. This supplemental screen is more extensive and tests for more disorders than the Texas newborn metabolic screening. To purchase a test kit or for more information, call 1-800-4Baylor (1-800-422-9567) or order supplies through Baylor Health Care Systems.
In the hospital soon after birth, your baby will receive an injection of Vitamin K to bolster your baby’s blood clotting system, and antibiotic ointment is applied to their eyes to treat for any possible contamination during birth. The hospital staff will also offer the initial Hepatitis B vaccination.
When your baby is born, call our office to schedule your newborn’s first appointment. We usually like to schedule this special appointment when your baby is between three to four days old.
We can't wait to meet your little one!
