Readmission to hospital

Your baby may need to be readmitted to hospital after they come home. This is not unusual for babies born premature or sick. This may be a worrying and upsetting time for your family, but remember to be positive, and that your baby has already overcome many difficulties.

Babies who need to go back to hospital will be admitted to the children’s ward, not the neonatal unit. There are very rare exceptions to this. One reason could be if it was only a very short time since your baby was discharged.
