As an expectant, first-time mother, when should I schedule my first visit with a pediatrician?
In general, seven to eight months in your pregnancy. Interview your potential pediatricians; it’s important to be sure your personalities match and that you are comfortable with your doctor. Keep in mind that every doctor handles things differently. Some may take a structured approach while others are more laid back. Make sure you both will be on the same page when it comes to managing your child’s health and wellness so there will be a good level of trust in your relationship with your pediatrician.
