If your doctor issues orders for a visit with a Mother/Baby Program nurse, a convenient time will be scheduled for your appointment.

During the visit, the nurse will examine you and/or your baby to check for physical condition. She will also review instructions you received during your hospital stay, talk about breast or bottle feeding, provide further advice on care of your newborn, and discuss any questions or concerns you may have. For the breastfeeding mother, St. Anthony's is pleased to have lactation counselors and a certified lactation consultant on staff to assist with any breastfeeding problems that you may encounter while in the hospital or after arriving home.
