Expectant Parents


Why should expectant parents visit a pediatrician?

The bond that develops between Pediatrician and parent is an important one and we think it's really important to meet before the baby is born and see if we are a good match for your family.

It also helps you gain insights on topics like newborn care, breastfeeding, vaccines, healthy growth, and development.

The more you know about these and other subjects, the easier it is to identify symptoms that indicate potentially serious health problems for your baby. What’s more, you can ensure your child receives the medical care they need to live a long, happy, and active life.

What services do expectant parents receive?

Robertson Pediatrics offers various services to expectant parents, including:

Prenatal Visits: This is an opportunity to select a pediatrician before your child’s birth. During a prenatal visit, Dr. Sammy and his team will gather basic health information about you and your partner, offer advice on what to expect in the coming months, and identify any high-risk conditions that might require special care.

In addition, a prenatal visit establishes pediatric care for your baby and helps you develop the skills and confidence needed to thrive as a parent,

Anticipatory guidance: We provide parents with tips, insights, and education on childhood safety and health. If you’re new to parenting, there’s a lot to learn. Dr. Sammy uses anticipatory guidance to educate expectant parents on the importance of preventive medicine, including vaccines, annual physicals, and well-child exams.

When should expectant parents visit a pediatrician?

Dr. Sammy recommends expectant parents visit a pediatrician in the third trimester of pregnancy. By selecting a provider for your baby now, you have someone to assist after delivery with newborn care. Dr. Sammy and his associates will care for your baby both in the hospital and home setting.

What should I bring to an appointment for expectant parents?

To get the most of your consultation at Robertson Pediatrics, bring the following items:

  • Health insurance card
  • List of questions or concerns
  • Names and contact info of the doctors or specialists you’ve recently visited
