Before You Leave Memorial
Our commitment to patient education continues throughout your stay. Your nurse will conduct one-on-one instruction and is always available to answer any questions you may have.
During and after your stay here, Memorial's certified Lactation Educators are available for consultation and instruction.
Returning home with a new baby is exciting and intimidating. To help you make a safe and healthy transition,
Memorial Maternal Child Home Health Care program is available through Memorial Home Services,
an affiliate of Memorial Health System.
Staff members of the Maternal Child Program are registered nurses with obstetric and newborn experience.
To reinforce inpatient teaching on baby care or postpartum instructions, Memorial Home Services' registered nurses visit your home for
complete assessment and teaching. The visit includes maternal and newborn assessments, newborn care and instructions, breastfeeding or bottle-feeding
assistance, social services and counseling.
After you've gone home, please call us at (217) 788-4666 if you have any questions or concerns. We're here 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
