Resources for Caring for Your Baby and Yourself

We offer many learning opportunities for you and your support person in the hospital. We realize that people learn best in different ways, so we offer the following resources:

  • "The Newborn Channel" is scheduled television programming around the clock with various subjects, such as breastfeeding, baby care, car seats, and taking care of yourself after giving birth.

  • We have expert staff that will demonstrate your baby's first bath in your room and you can watch or assist them, as you feel comfortable.

  • Nurses will also teach baby care, diapering, circumcision care, and personal care and are prepared to assist you with learning how to feed your baby.

  • You will receive an discharge bag with educational materials, to include Highland's personalized guide to postpartum care.

  • To help prepare you for your first few days and weeks at home and help to streamline the discharge process, you will be asked to view a discharge and Shaken Baby video during your stay.
