Trinity Birth Center's Level II Special Care Nursery

Sometimes babies need extra care when they are born; Trinity Birth Center offers that special care. At Trinity Birth Center's Level II Special Care Nursery, you can have the assurance that your baby will have the medical support he or she may need. 

Babies who can breathe on their own, yet need medical treatment, will spend time in our Level II Special Care Nursery where they can be continuously monitored. Our Level II Nursery can provide breathing support for babies that are having respiratory difficulties. They can be given an IV drip for fluids and/or medications. Additionally, we are able to help newborns who are experiencing difficulty sucking and need help getting nourishment by giving them breast milk or formula through a nasogastric (NG) tube (a tube placed in the nose and into the stomach). 

If your baby does need to be placed in Trinity Birth Center's Level II Nursery, he or she will receive care from specially trained nursery nurses and pediatricians. Pediatricians are doctors that are specifically trained to care for babies and children. 

No one wants their newborn to be sick or need special help, but unfortunately sometimes it happens. Which is why choosing a hospital that is well equipped to handle you and your baby's needs is one of the most important choices you make as a parent.
