Newborn Care

When a new baby arrives it is important to schedule and attend all well-baby visits.  It is also important to learn how to hold your new baby, how to care for the baby's belly button, how to bond with and comfort the baby when he or she cries. It is also important to learn about immunizing your baby and well-baby visits. For specific questions on newborn care and immunizations, speak to your health care provider, or contact your health plan. Click on the links below to learn about Newborn Care and Immunization Services.
