Mother-Baby Assessment Center
St. Joseph Hospital's award winning Mother-Baby Assessment Center provides a safety net for new moms during that critical time between hospital discharge and the first visit with a physician.
Your first visit to the St. Joseph Hospital Mother-Baby Assessment Center should occur when you find out you are pregnant. During your visit, you will be given your "Pathway Through Pregnancy" booklet - your personal guide through your maternity experience and your partnership with St. Joseph Hospital.
You and your baby will be scheduled for your Mother-Baby Assessment Center follow-up appointment within one week after delivery. The appointment will be made before your discharge from the hospital. Our staff will work in conjunction with your obstetrician and pediatrician to coordinate a healthy transition for you and your baby.
Our Mother-Baby Assessment Center is dedicated to both the health and well-being of mother and baby. St. Joseph Hospital is the only hospital in Orange County that provides this service. Our Center is also open to the community.
