Finding a pediatrician might not be something you think about early in pregnancy, but it’s important to make a decision well in advance of your due date.
Before you leave the hospital, a pediatrician will examine your baby and talk with you to answer any newborn-care questions you might have. You’ll likely be asked to schedule a follow-up appointment within one week.
Early pediatrician appointments are vital to ensure your newborn is healthy and thriving. During your baby’s first year, your pediatrician will help you make the right decisions when it comes to nutrition, safe sleeping, vaccinations and more.
