Newborn Care

After the birth and once the family has had time to quietly and privately bond with the baby, your midwife will give the newborn a thorough head-to-toe examination and the weight, measurements and reflexes will be checked. According to the parents’ wishes, an injection of vitamin K and an antibiotic eye ointment can be administered.

Katrina, Jamin and La Shel  will discuss these procedures with you prior to labor and delivery. They strongly believe in assisting and allowing parents to make informed choices. They can assist with breastfeeding and offer baby care advice from swaddling to diaper changing.  All newborn testing available at the hospital is also offered through San Diego Midwife.
