Newborn Care

Newborn resuscitation and early life care are core components of the scope of care of a full spectrum family physician. We provide a busy Level One nursery experience including delivery room resuscitation experience with low and high-risk deliveries, NICU consult exposure for evaluation of the sick infant and lactation/breastfeeding support.  We work very closely with our neonatal intensive care unit providers when evaluating our littlest patients for conditions like neonatal abstinence syndrome, jaundice, hypoglycemia, and sepsis. We also attend all deliveries we can to provide neonatal resuscitation when necessary, but specifically attend high risk deliveries alongside our neonatal intensivists. Furthermore, our service performs frenotomies, and there are moonlighting opportunities for performing newborn circumcisions in the hospital.
