Congratulations! Welcoming a baby into your family is an exciting time.
We would like to assist you in your process of choosing the best pediatric practice for your family. We offer informational sessions on select evenings each month where we invite you to visit our office and meet with one of our physicians who will discuss the practice and answer any questions that you may have.
Here’s what you need to know when the big day comes!
Hospital Stay: There are many great hospitals in the community, once you’ve delivered your baby they will be seen by the hospital staff pediatrician for the first examinations. The hospital staff will provide your baby with a vitamin K shot, routine hearing screen, blood test for state newborn screening and offer Hepatitis B vaccination. We encourage all patients to receive the first Hepatitis B vaccine at the hospital. Once you know your discharge date please call to schedule your first appointment with us the day you are being discharged from the hospital. The first visit in our office is 1-2 days after you leave the hospital.
Please note that effective November 15, 2019 we are no longer seeing newborns in the well-baby nursery at Shady Grove Hospital.
