Newborn hearing test – Definition

A newborn hearing screening is a test done to make sure your baby does not have a problem hearing. The test is done by an audiologist, a person trained to identify and manage hearing problems. A newborn hearing test is usually done before a baby leaves the hospital after birth. If it is not done during the newborn period, it is usually done within the first month of life.
