Newborn care information

Once your newborn baby has been delivered, a physical examination and health assessment of the new baby begins immediately. In brief, physical examination is based on the Apgar test, which is to check for obvious signs that the newborn is healthy at one minute and five minutes after birth. Our doctor or midwife will then evaluate and assign points for each of the criteria:

  • Appearance (Skin Colour)

  • Pulse (Heart rate)

  • Grimace response (Reflexes)

  • Activity (Muscle tone)

  • Respiration (Breathing Rate)

Other examination includes physical examination, which includes;

  • Head to toe examination

  • Head circumference measurement

  • Weight and height

  • Hearing test
