Help After Discharge

Who to call if you have questions

It is important that you have a full understanding of self-care and baby care prior to your discharge. Before you leave the hospital, ask your health care provider the following:

  • When should I schedule a follow-up appointment?
  • What medications should I be taking at home?
  • Which medications you should I avoid?

Ask your pediatrician:

  • When should I schedule my baby’s follow-up appointment?
  • Are there any specific concerns or situations I should be looking for?

If you have questions about your care, please call your OB.

If you have questions about your baby's care, please call your baby’s pediatrician.
