Your baby will be tested for three things before you leave the hospital or birthing center:

  • Blood test: A few drops of blood will be taken from your baby's heel and tested for dozens of health conditions.
  • Hearing test: Your baby's hearing will be tested to make sure they can hear normally.
  • Pulse oximetry: A painless sensor will be placed on your baby's skin to measure their blood oxygen levels. Low oxygen levels can be a sign of a heart condition.
