Newborn Channel at Bassett

April 1, 2014

The Newborn Channel is now available at the Birthing Center at Bassett Medical Center. The Newborn Channel delivers essential newborn and parenting information to help prepare new moms and their partners when they need it most. New parents and their families can enjoy easy access to highly trusted, professionally endorsed content on topics such as infant and mom care, siblings and family living, work-life balance and more.

The Newborn Channel provides engaging and accessible programming on many topics, including:

Diapering, bathing and other infant care
Mom health and recovery topics 
Breastfeeding basics and tips for success
Safety topics like car seat safety, smoking cessation, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and more


Programs and transcripts from the Newborn Channel are also available for new parents on demand before, during and after their hospital stay.

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.

“Having a baby, especially the first time, can be a little scary for new parents,” observes Robin Stasilli, nurse manager in the Bassett Birthing Center. The Newborn Channel’s content is meant to help demystify diapering, feeding, and caring for both mom and baby. Moms and dads can view programs and talk to the hospital’s educators before they are back home on their own with their new baby.”
