Newborn Well-Child Visit

This is one of the most exciting moments in a parent's life!  Your new bundle of joy has arrived!  

Your baby's first check-up usually takes place 3-5 days after giving birth.  In this visit you can expect us to:

  • Check your baby's weight
  • Review birth and pregnancy history
  • Register the baby as a new patient
  • Establish family and social history
  • Check to see how your baby is feeding
  • Answer all questions you may have about your new baby!

We will also review all paperwork and testing done in the hospital and administer the first dose of Hepatitis B vaccine if not given in the hospital.
