What did Central Jersey Newborn Care do for my baby?
There are many reasons why your OB/GYN or pediatrician would call a CJNC doctor to help care for your baby. Although the CJNC doctor will introduce themselves to you and what they are doing to care for your baby, you still may not remember them with all that is going on. Some common reasons are:
High Risk Delivery
CJNC doctors are asked to attend all c-sections and twin births, even if everything seems normal and healthy. These are high risk deliveries and having a CJNC neonatologist present helps lower the risk for the infant.
When babies prior to 37 weeks in their mother’s womb, they are considered premature and may have more problems adjusting to life outside the womb. The earlier the birth the more problems are likely.
Neonatal Intensive Care
Premature babies may need days or weeks of special care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) before they are strong enough to go home. CJNC doctors provide this specialized critical care necessary.
