If your baby was born in the hospital, your baby should have been screened for hearing loss. You should have received a hard copy ‘roadmap’ or something similar to let you know whether your baby was screened or not, and the results. If you are not sure, read on….
If you were not given the results of your baby’s hearing screening in the hospital, and/or you are not sure if your baby was screened, contact your hospital and ask whether your child was screened or not.
