In New Hampshire, all hospitals with birth facilities offer newborn hearing screening before babies go home. Babies who do not pass their hearing screening are referred for hearing testing by qualified audiologists. Hearing screening is quick, easy, and does not hurt. Many infants sleep through the screening.
