In Manitoba, all parents of newborns are offered newborn hearing screening. More information about the Universal Hearing Screening program is available here.
The Birth Centre is a community site for the Universal Newborn Hearing Screening program.
When you deliver your baby at the Birth Centre or at home, the midwife will offer to submit a referral form for hearing screening. The UNHS program will call you in the next few weeks to arrange an appointment at the Birth Centre.
