Bringing baby home: Instructions for home care

Congratulations on your new baby! We've put together a list of helpful information and links to access Providence postpartum care services.

Newborn Hearing Screening

The first two years of a child’s life are the most important for speech and language development. That’s why it’s important to detect hearing problems early. The state of Oregon requires that all newborns be given a hearing test soon after they are born.

Your baby needs a doctor

Before you preregister for your delivery, you must choose a primary care provider for your baby. This provider will coordinate well-baby visits, immunizations and general medical care for your baby for many years to come.
