Newborn Follow-up Services

We schedule appointments for newborn follow-up care as soon after discharge as necessary to assure the best care. Faculty experts in breastfeeding and newborn care staff these clinics and supervise residents and medical students from the UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital Newborn Nurseries General Academic Pediatric faculty members provide a clinical teaching service at Magee-Womens Hospital Newborn Nurseries.

Faculty members see newborn babies and their families while teaching pediatric and family medicine residents and medical students about normal newborn assessment, management, discharge planning and breastfeeding education. They also teach the most current medical practices in providing exceptional care to newborns at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital. This is the largest clinical teaching service at Magee.
