- Care of the premature infant
- Breast or bottle feeding education
- Care of the infant with neonatal abstinence syndrome (drug/alcohol exposed infant)
For women with high risk pregnancy we provide comprehensive assessment and education regarding diabetes, hyper-emesis, hypertension and pre-eclampsia to name a few. We also provide infusion therapy such as intravenous antibiotics and hydration.
After childbirth our experienced registered nurses provide care for and teaching of Caesarian section wounds, high risk follow up, and post-partum depression.
