Newborn Jaundice and Kernicterus

Take the Tummy Trouble Quiz

Where can I find support if my infant is affected by kernicterus?

It might be helpful for parents of children affected by kernicterus to talk with one another. One parent might have learned how to address some of the same concerns another parent has. Often, parents of children with special needs can give advice about good resources for these children.

Remember that the choices of one family might not be best for another family, so it's important that parents understand all options and discuss them with their child's health care providers.
