Newborn Care Q & A

What is newborn care?

Newborn care is a highly important stage in healthcare that your child needs starting shortly after birth. Professional newborn care at Redwood Family Health Center helps you transition into parenthood with more knowledge of your child’s health and needs. 

Your newborn’s physician can answer all of your questions and offer helpful guidance for the first year of life. 

Shortly after your child is born, you might feel overwhelmed or anxious about the extreme changes you’ll make to your routine as your baby grows. 

Starting with an initial comprehensive exam for your baby a few days after birth, the team walks you through regular visits to make sure your newborn is growing and getting the nutrients they need.

Which newborn care services does my child need?

At Redwood Family Health Center, we offer many in-office services that can benefit your newborn. These include:


Starting at birth, your child needs vaccinations to prevent many illnesses that were once very prevalent in children. Your physician tells you exactly when you need to come in for all immunizations and boosters, which can protect children from illnesses like hepatitis B, tetanus, pertussis, chickenpox, and polio. 

Circumcision and umbilical cord care

It’s up to you whether to circumcise your newborn boy, and our team ensures you have all the information you need to make your decision. We can also help with umbilical cord care. 


Your baby’s first year of life, and a few years after, include regular visits to the practice for growth and development tracking. 

Sick visits

If you have concerns about your newborn’s health, our physicians can provide an as-needed examination. We will likely ask for details about your concerns and can make sure your child is healthy. We can also provide lab testing or treatment if necessary.

What are some newborn care tips to follow at home?

During your newborn care visits, our team offers guidance and support for you as the parent. You can use the information you receive to provide the best possible care as your child progresses through infancy.
