A prenatal visit with a pediatrician is an excellent way to begin caring for your baby before birth. Pediatricians specialize in treating children of all ages, including newborns. The prenatal visit affords an opportunity to become familiar with our pediatric team so you feel comfortable and confident bringing your little one in for routine well-care visits following birth. The caring providers at Pediatric Associates of Wellesley in Medfield and Weston, MA, offer prenatal visits to answer all your pediatric questions. 

What is a Pediatric Prenatal Visit? 

A pediatric prenatal visit is an appointment between you, the expectant parent, and a pediatrician that allows you to get to know one another better before your little one is born. Your baby will have many well-care visits during the first few years of life so it is important to find the right pediatrician for you and your child. 

During a pediatric prenatal visit at our Weston, MA, practice you’ll learn all about our pediatric team and office. We’ll answer any questions you have about caring for your little one and provide guidance in various areas, including car seats, feedings, immunizations, and more. We want to make sure you have all the information you need as you begin this exciting new journey into parenthood. 

Another aspect of a prenatal visit is gathering information about you, your family, and your family’s health history. This information helps us better customize a care plan that best meets the needs of you and your baby. 

Benefits of a Pediatric Prenatal Visit

A major benefit of a pediatric prenatal visit is that it gives you the chance to develop a positive working relationship with your child’s pediatricians even before birth. That way you can feel more confident and comfortable when the time comes to bring your little one in for those first well-care visits. 

Another benefit of scheduling a pediatric prenatal visit is that it gives you the opportunity to learn more about the services we offer. In addition to monitoring the grown and development of your child, we provide a wide range of healthcare services to help promote better health for your little one throughout childhood. Services include newborn care, routine checkups, immunizations, sick child visits, and more.
