Newborn babies are given a hearing screening in most hospitals prior to departure. If you have been advised that this test requires a follow up assessment, Knox Audiology Wantirna can provide these important assessments. The follow up test is done with your baby at rest or ideally asleep, just like the one in hospital, and takes measurements of the baby’s hearing ability via the recording of brain patterns. It is non invasive and ideally, your baby will sleep through the whole thing.
We know that new parents have a lot on their plate, but it is important arrange this review appointment as a matter of priority so we can ensure your baby is hearing the best they possibly can. Call us on 9800 5697 to arrange neonatal hearing test for your baby, and please bring your referral sheet from the hospital screening.
