Some sick and special babies can be looked after at home instead of in a hospital. Many health care services can be provided in your home.
When home care begins, someone may come to your home or visit with you while your baby is still in hospital to see what you need. This person is called an intake worker, a coordinator, a nurse, a supervisor, or even by a different name, depending in what part of the country you live.
During this visit, be sure to carefully explain the care that your baby needs. Not all workers or nurses are familiar with babies like yours.
