A baby’s transition from life in the womb, to life outside of the womb, refers to the first four to six hours after being born. Certain changes you can expect include changes in a baby’s breathing as more blood starts flowing to the lungs, as well as more oxygen getting to the lungs as the fluid starts to clear out. This is a critical time for baby, and the newborn needs to be evaluated every half hour to every hour to make sure that extra care, besides just the routine care, isn’t needed.
