What To Expect At Prenatal Pediatrician Visits

When you're expecting a baby, there's a lot to think about and prepare for. One important aspect that shouldn't be overlooked is choosing a pediatrician for your newborn. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that all expectant families schedule a visit with a pediatrician during the third trimester of pregnancy. This allows for a smooth transition from the hospital to your pediatrician's office, as well as the opportunity to address any concerns or questions before your baby arrives.

During your complimentary prenatal consultation, our team at New Beginnings Pediatrics will cover a range of important topics to ensure you're well-prepared for the arrival of your little one. This might include subjects like:

  • Safety Topics : We'll discuss important safety measures like proper installation and use of car seats, appropriate bedding for your baby's crib or bassinet, and important immunizations family members should have to protect your newborn.
  • Breastfeeding Support : If you plan on breastfeeding, we can provide helpful tips and resources to make the experience as smooth as possible. We can also address any concerns or questions you may have about this process.
  • Newborn Care : We'll go over the basics of newborn care, including how to spot signs of illness and when to contact us for medical advice. We can also provide guidance on routine check-ups, vaccinations, and developmental milestones.
  • Postpartum Support : We understand that the postpartum period can be overwhelming and emotional. That's why we're here to offer support and guidance to new parents, including information on postpartum depression and how to recognize its signs.

The prenatal visit is more than just a checklist; it's an opportunity to voice your concerns, ask questions, and feel reassured that you have the resources and support you need for a successful start to your parenting journey. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I really need to see a pediatrician before my baby is born?

While not required, scheduling a prenatal visit with a pediatrician can be extremely beneficial for expecting families. It allows you to establish a relationship with your child's future doctor and get important information and resources to help you prepare for your baby's arrival.

First-time parents, single parents, new members of the community, those expecting multiples, or families facing high-risk pregnancies may find a prenatal visit particularly helpful. However, even if this is your second or third child and you’ve had an easy pregnancy, a prenatal visit can still provide valuable insights and support as you navigate the journey of parenthood.

When should I schedule my first pregnancy doctor visit?

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends scheduling your first prenatal visit during the third trimester of pregnancy. This allows for a smooth transition from the hospital to your pediatrician's office and gives you the opportunity to address any questions or concerns before your baby arrives.

Can I bring other family members to the prenatal visit?

Absolutely! We welcome and encourage expecting parents, grandparents, or any other family member who will be involved in your baby's care to attend the prenatal consultation. This is a great opportunity for everyone to get familiar with our practice and have their questions answered.

If you have other children who are about to become a big brother or sister, we also recommend bringing them along so they can feel included and prepared for the arrival of their new sibling. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for families, and we're excited to meet everyone who will be part of your child's life.
