Newborn Screening Program Brochures: Comprehensive brochures are available in English and Spanish and are provided to families at three time points.  The first brochure is provided to pregnant women by obstetricians and other prenatal care providers.  The second brochure is given to parents in the hospital soon after their baby is born.  The third brochure is mailed to parents a few weeks after their baby is discharged from the hospital.
