Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic
The Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic provides care for premature infants who were born at less than 29 weeks of pregnancy or with a birth weight less than 1500 grams, after they leave hospital. Other infants from the Neonatal Nurseries may be referred to the clinic because they were very sick at birth or have health problems that could affect their development.
Children who were born preterm or who spent time in the NICU after birth may meet challenges as they grow. The health team at the clinic provides education and assessment of a child’s health, growth, and development until they are three years corrected age.
