* Assisting with the initiation of breast feeding and providing support to promote its success.
* Fostering positive parent/infant relationships.
* Teaching about the needs and care of the newborn and siblings.
* Evaluate the baby on growth and development and assess for any abnormalities that may require further investigation and/or assessment by a physician.
* Evaluate maternal status with regard to the normal processes after delivery.
* Assess and support integration of the baby into the home environment.
* Review plans for future health maintenance and care, including routine infant immunizations, identification of illness and periodic health evaluations.
