Expectant Mothers Q & A
When do expectant mothers need a pediatrician?
Expectant mothers need a pediatrician before they have their baby. Your baby starts newborn care with their pediatrician three to five days after birth. Even if this isn’t your first baby, bringing home a newborn can be exciting and overwhelming.
Early and regular newborn care helps you and your baby stay healthy. During these visits, your pediatrician conducts comprehensive exams to assess your baby’s growth and development.
They also ask questions to make sure your baby is meeting developmental milestones.
Finding delays in growth and development early may help your baby catch up faster.
When should expectant mothers look for a pediatrician?
Kids & Teens Medical Group recommends expectant mothers start looking for a pediatrician about one to three months before their due date. That gives you enough time to find, meet, and get to know your pediatrician before your baby comes into the world.
However, it’s never too early to start looking. Your child’s pediatrician is an important part of you and your child’s life, and you want to find a doctor you connect with and one who makes you feel comfortable.
The Kids & Teens Medical Group team takes an integrative approach to care. When you come in with your infant, child, or teen, they always take the time needed to listen intently to you and your child’s concerns.
The Kids & Teens Medical Group team believes that children are the future, and preserving and optimizing their health is their duty.
Before deciding on a pediatrician, Kids & Teens Medical Group offers a free meet and greet consultation for expectant mothers.
