Having a Baby

THE MOST JOYOUS DAY OF YOUR LIFE

Bringing a newborn into the world is one of life’s most incredible moments. But the joy of birth is often accompanied by a tinge of anxiety. It’s only natural. Most of our doctors, nurses and support staff are parents too. We know how it feels.

A COPA PEDIATRICIAN WILL VISIT YOU IN THE HOSPITAL

When you choose COPA, and you have your baby at St. Charles in Bend, we’ll see you in the hospital before you go home. Your pediatrician will provide your newborn with a thorough examination, and spend quality time covering your first days of care and feeding.

In addition, COPA’s Newborn Patient Advocate will meet you, set up your baby’s account and schedule your first visits. You’re not going home alone. You can leave the hospital knowing you’re all set up with your doctor, and we’re just a phone call away.

COPA is the only medical group in Central Oregon that provides this service.

If you have your baby in another location, just give us a call. We’ll help you with your first appointment schedule, and make sure you’re feeling safe and comfortable with your newborn.

If you have any questions once you get home, COPA’s 24/7 Nurse Advice is there to support you. Feel free to give them a call anytime, day or night.

YOUR BABY’S FIRST APPOINTMENT

Please plan for your child’s well-check appointment within 2 – 5 days after baby is born, and again after the first 2 weeks. Your baby’s doctor will track your newborn’s physical and behavioral milestones, listen to your concerns, and help you navigate these first months of your newborn’s life.

NEWBORN SCREENINGS

At birth, your baby’s doctor performs preventive screening tests to ensure your baby is healthy. More information about these state-mandated test is available at Oregon State Website. Newborn screening forms are given to moms in the hospital and need to accompany the baby to their first pediatric visit.

BREASTFEEDING YOUR BABY 

Breastfeeding is the best way to offer your child a great foundation for a lifetime of good health. But it’s not always easy. When you need help, COPA has a Certified Lactation Consultant on our team to provide you with personalized breastfeeding assistance. You can call the main COPA number to schedule an appointment. Or you can call COPA’s 24/7 Telephone Nurse Advice Line. They’ll listen to your concerns and work to help you in the moment.

We also work with the St Charles Lactation Services program at 541-382-4321, ext. 5670, where you can speak to a lactation nurse for support.
