After your baby is born, the caring specialists at UPMC in central Pa. will perform a variety of tests and screenings designed to detect problems and treat any underlying health issues.
Standard tests performed after birth include:
Most tests are noninvasive—in fact, you might not even realize your baby is being tested during the first few minutes after birth. After you are transferred to the maternity unit, your health care team will care for your baby and perform additional tests in the comfort of your hospital room.
If you wish to have your son circumcised, our providers can perform this procedure in the hospital. Circumcision is a procedure that cuts away the foreskin that covers the head of the penis.
