It can be accessed on Channel 34 in English and on Channel 35 in Spanish. Programs and transcripts from the Newborn Channel are also available for new parents on demand before, during and after their hospital stay. In addition, patients will be given a password in order to access the Newborn Channel’s website when they return home.
The educational content on the Newborn Channel is overseen and reviewed by a medical advisory board which works diligently to ensure all content is up-to-date and presented in a clear and understandable way for patients and their families.
“Our videos are meant to help demystify diapering, feeding, and caring for both mom and baby,” said Dave Ross, COO of The Wellness Network. “Moms and dads can view programs and talk with the hospital’s educators before they are home on their own with the new baby.”
