Our Newborn Services Include:

Infant Security

We offer enhanced security for our youngest patients using infant footprint digital technology that provides a unique way to identify each baby. Our infant safety system provides a digital capture and storage of newborn footprints as well as the option of including the mother’s identification within the system. Upon discharge, the family will have access to their newborn’s digital footprint to include on any memorabilia or if ever needed in critical situations.

Lactation and Feeding Consultants

Breastfeeding can be one of the most beneficial things a mother can do for her baby, in addition to providing a special bonding time for mother and child. Our certified lactation consultants help expectant parents prepare for breastfeeding and provide one-on-one assistance to new parents.

Newborn Hearing, Screening and Testing

During your stay at South Lake Hospital's Centre for Women's Health, your newborn will undergo a series of screenings and testing procedures to ensure that your baby is healthy and ready for discharge. These procedures also help to identify any conditions or birth defects that may have gone undetected during pregnancy.
