Bridgeport Hospital OB Wellness

Post-Partum wellness checks deliver healthier moms, babies, and results.
Because of a generous gift from a donor family, new mothers are scheduled to return to the
hospital 7-10 days after discharge for a followup visit with an obstetric APRN and registered
lactation consultant. Based on the results of the visit, the mother and/or infant will be connected to
a network of support services to address a range of issues including breastfeeding, proper infant
nutrition, high blood pressure and postpartum depression. Since inception in 2019, this program has reduced
Emergency Room visits by new moms and their babies by 29%.
