There is so much to think about in the weeks leading up to the arrival of your precious newborn. As you prepare for your new addition, one of the most important decisions to be made is who will you entrust with your child’s healthcare? At Portland Pediatric Group, we encourage expectant mothers to schedule a prenatal pediatric visit in order to get to know our pediatricians, meet our staff, and learn more about the child healthcare services we provide.
Scheduling Your Visit
It is recommended that you schedule your prenatal pediatric visit during your third trimester, between 32 and 36 weeks gestation. This allows time for you to gather the necessary information you need to properly choose your child’s pediatrician and healthcare plan.It is recommended that you schedule your prenatal pediatric visit during your third trimester, between 32 and 36 weeks gestation.
