We provide professional support in Baby Care Unit.
It is a part of the delivery room service where babies do
not stay permanently. Babies are temporarily kept in this section only for
operations like postpartum first care, bathing, screening tests and training.
The first evaluation of the newborn baby is done in this section by the pediatrician.
In this assessment early risk factors -if they exist- are identified.
By planning against these risks, the family is informed at every stage.
The most important function of the baby care room is to
provide information about breast milk and breastfeeding and to inform the
mothers and expectant mothers during the training process.
In 2009, our institution received the title of BABY FRIENDLY HOSPITAL.
In this program where the baby and the mother are brought
together as soon as possible after the delivery (within a half hour to 1 hour),
the diet starts with breast milk and until the baby is 2 years old, only breast
milk is recommended with additional food. Educations is greatly important for
us within this program.
Within the Baby Friendly Hospital Program, all departmental staff, as well as all the
employees of the departments in connection with mothers and babies, are trained
at regular intervals on breast milk and breastfeeding, and families are supported in this regard.
Our counseling and training process continue uninterruptedly after discharge.
