As a pediatric gastroenterologist, I’m often asked whether there is any way to prevent a child from developing celiac disease. Based on what I knew regarding how food allergies develop, I used to counsel families that there might be a “window of opportunity”, between four and six months, when it’s possible to introduce grains and other gluten-containing foods that could potentially “teach” the immune system to tolerate gluten and thus lower the risk of developing celiac disease.

The Swedish Issaquah Women, Infants and Children’s team is excited to announce the opening of our Level II Nursery, helping us provide specialized, around-the-clock care to premature babies born as early as 32 weeks gestational age.
The nursery is staffed by highly skilled neonatal advance practice registered nurses, with support by neonatologists. These nurses and physicians are part of the Pediatrix Medical Group, the same group of clinicians who staff Swedish’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the First Hill campus and the special-care nurseries at Swedish’s Ballard and Edmonds campuses.
Our nursery features:
Six private, state-of-the-art hospital rooms offering the latest in neonatal technology and space for parents to sleep.
A multidisciplinary medical team trained to take care of premature newborns. The care team includes advanced practice registered nurses and physicians who specialize in neonatology, plus registered nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, care managers, dietitians, lactation consultants, child life specialists, physical and occupational therapists, pharmacists and more.
A family-centered environment where newborns and their parents receive tender, loving support they deserve. The Robin’s Nest lounge provides families a place to relax, while staying close to their little ones.
A location in close proximity to other related services. The Level II Nursery is located on the second floor of the hospital near the Labor & Delivery, Post Partum and Pediatric Units.
