What's Included in Our Newborn Care?

When you have a newborn, getting the best possible medical care for your baby is high on your list of priorities. It’s comforting to know that you can turn to the experienced family medicine practitioners at Living Water Community Health and Wellness Clinic for top-quality care.

With professional newborn care, we aim to help you, your baby, and your whole family can stay strong, happy, and healthy. Here’s what you should know about the newborn care services available at Living Water Clinic locations in Porterville, Lindsay, and Visalia, California.

What you need to know about newborn care

During the first year of your baby’s life, regular newborn care is important to ensure that your baby remains in good health. From your baby’s first medical exam — typically 3-5 days after the birth — to scheduled checkups and vaccinations throughout their first year, you can expect a high standard of care at Living Water Clinic.

At regular, scheduled newborn care appointments, we measure and record your baby’s weight, length, head circumference, temperature, and heart rate. We can provide treatments for common newborn ailments like eye infections, and we answer any questions you have about your baby’s care needs.

You can also contact the primary care team at Living Water Community Health and Wellness Clinic at any time if you have concerns about your newborn’s health. 

Give us a call right away if you’re worried about potential infections, persistent runny nose, or fever in an infant with a rectal temperature above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Diarrhea and vomiting beyond the usual baby spit-up are also reasons to get in touch with a primary care doctor, as your baby could become dangerously dehydrated.

At Living Water Clinic, we value a holistic approach to family medicine lets us get to know and care for newborns and their whole families. As your baby grows, you can keep bringing your child to the familiar environment of our Living Water Clinic offices for regular well-child checkups. We provide family medicine and primary care for adults, teens, children, and newborns, so we can be a medical home for your entire family.
