Why did the nurse give my newborn a injection in the thigh?
Marie, can you tell me why the nurse gave my baby an injection in the thigh after delivery? I was too tired to ask the question then, and I just remembered now.
Many new things happen when a baby arrives. Many first-time parents have told me they appreciated the fact that nurses explained the primary care they gave to their baby after delivery. This includes a vitamin K injection. Please read my article about Postnatal Baby Care for more details.
Je vous invite à lire mon billet sur les soins au bébé en postnatal pour toute l’explication.
