Expecting Parents

The time spent waiting for a baby can be both exciting and overwhelming. Loving and caring for a child is “the hardest job you’ll ever love.” Naturally parents have many questions before and after a baby is born. We are focused on helping you feel supported and informed; not just in the beginning, but at all of the ever-changing stages of your child’s life.

Many parents start a relationship with their child’s pediatrician with a prenatal visit. At this visit you can discuss anything that is important to you. There are no insignificant questions. Many common topics are feeding, circumcision, checkups, immunizations, emergency care and doctor availability, just to name a few. These visits can be arranged by calling the office at any time during or before your pregnancy and requesting a meeting.

Other parents are comfortable waiting until after a child is born before meeting their pediatrician in the hospital or at the first office visit. This is also a very acceptable approach as you are always invited to ask questions during visits and by phone consultation.

We recommend “What to Expect The First Year” by Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel as a great reference for first time and experienced parents alike.
