Welcome to you and your newborn
A referral to our Newborn Clinic can be made from the location of your birthing or via self-referral
To be referred to the clinic, families must meet the following criteria:
- live within Prince Edward County boundaries
- be without a primary care provider OR be with a primary care provider that is located further than a one-hour drive from Prince Edward County
- have a baby that is less than 6 weeks old.
For self-referrals, please call Jenn Howting, RN, at 613-813-6512 to arrange a well-newborn check.
For hospital referrals, the Prince Edward Health Team should contact you within one week post-birth for an appointment. If you have not received a call, please contact Jenn Howting, RN, at 613-813-6512 to arrange a well newborn check.
At the well newborn clinic, your baby will be scheduled for a series of well-baby checks from birth to six weeks of age
*NOTE: If your baby is unwell, you are advised to seek healthcare from a visit to a walk-in clinic or hospital emergency room.
