Going Home with Your Baby

Perhaps the most exciting moment of your birthing experience will be bringing your baby home.

Going Home with Your Baby

Before you go home, the staff taking care of you and your baby will show you how to take care of both the baby and yourself. You will learn how to bathe your baby, how to take care of your baby's umbilicus (belly button), and how to position your baby safely in the crib. You'll also learn what to expect for yourself as your body recovers, and how you can help things go smoothly.

The State of New Jersey requires that all infants ride in an approved car safety seat. You must have a car seat to drive your baby home safely.

Home Health Care
Our home care coordinators can help you arrange nursing care at home, if you need it, and can show you how to contact your insurance company to see what is covered.
