Prenatal visits

It's normal to have many questions as you anticipate the birth of your child…and even more after his or her birth. That's why it's important to have an honest and open relationship with a pediatrician you can trust. We invite you to schedule a prenatal consultation with one of our providers, so that you can start getting your questions answered. Click here to request an appointment. We also offer prenatal classes that will teach you some basics about well infant care and breastfeeding; see our News section for details! In addition, visit our Lactation Consultation page to discover some tips if you choose to breastfeed your infant. Our lactation nurses are pleased to do prenatal consultations as well.

Hospital Affiliations

        The pediatricians at PHCA are on staff at the nurseries of the following local hospitals:

If you plan to deliver at any of these hospitals, simply tell your obstetrician and the hospital staff that your child's pediatrician works with Pediatric Health Care Associates. The nursing staff will then notify us at the time of your child's birth. One of our pediatricians will visit you within 24 hours and examine your baby each day you are in the hospital. Prior to going home, one of our pediatricians will also tell you when your child’s next appointment should be. 

If you will be delivering at a different hospital, your baby will be cared for by the hospital's staff pediatricians; they will give you a summary of your child's birth and subsequent care.  Please bring this paperwork to your child's first appointment with us.  In the event your child requires specialty care, the neonatologists will notify us of your child's birth and will provide us with a detailed summary of the hospitalization at the time of his or her discharge.
