If your baby was born before you had the chance to prepare your home, you may want to use the waiting time before discharge to do this. If you feel unsure about what to prepare, please ask the nurse looking after your baby, who will be happy to advise you.
To help you prepare for going home, we have accommodation within the unit where you can stay overnight and gain confidence in caring for your baby on your own, with support close at hand if you need it.
We also offer a basic resuscitation skills session, which involves practical training. This course takes about an hour and is advertised on the unit. Please put your name on the list, if you are interested in attending.
