What happens after admission to the unit?
Your baby's condition is assessed and he/she is admitted to the room most appropriate to suit their condition. After admission, the baby will be weighed to give staff a baseline weight to work from. Even if the baby has been weighed on labour ward we will still weigh the baby again as often scales can give differing weights. The baby may be then nursed in an incubator. Incubators have a dual purpose, to keep baby warm and allow a good view of the baby.
