Is perinatal/newborn care at home a safe option?
Yes. Studies have shown that home care for these services affords better outcomes related to a longer course of breastfeeding, earlier recognition of clinical issues, and fewer readmissions for dehydration and hyperbilirubinemia.
Having your newborn at home on the biliblanket will promote bonding, breastfeeding, and comfort for your infant. Why leave your newborn in the hospital for this treatment if they can be at home with you?
Does a visit from a Heart in Home nurse replace the pediatrician or obstetrician visit?
No. Heart in Home serves as an intermediary and enhancement to the care provided by your obstetrician/pediatrician. The same care and assessments you and/or your newborn would receive in the hospital or physician office will be performed in your home under the direction of your health care provider. Like our slogan states, we give you that peace of mind knowing you will receive personalized care by a registered nurse who specializes in mother/baby care.
How will you report results to the obstetrician/pediatrician?
We will report any abnormal findings to your providers immediately.
I don't want an early discharge, but I would love to have one of your nurses for follow up. Can I be accomodated?
Heart in Home provides "Peace of Mind" visits to meet any of your needs. If you require lactation assistance, a one time visit for care essentials, or recurrent visits, we can accomodate any of these options. Please call for pricing.
What are the background of the nurses you employ?
We employ nurses who have been in this specialty area for at least 3 years. They have a passion for caring for the mothers and infants. We perform extensive qualification and background checks.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, check and credit cards. You can pay with your flexible reimbursement or wellness card account, and you can even list us on your gift registry. We will provide you with an invoice that can be used to submit for insurance reimbursement as well! Most insurance companies cover a postpartum visit with a provider order. Let your provider know that you would like this service when you are admitted for delivery.
