Providing a medical home for your baby is a very important decision that should be made well before your baby is born. Check with your obstetrician or other parents for recommendations, and find out which insurance plans are accepted at the practices you are considering.
Many primary care practices offer prenatal tours or open houses to get you acquainted with your baby’s pediatrician, family medicine doctor, or nurse practitioner. Your relationship with your baby’s provider is an important one. Your baby’s provider will become a trusted resource for important parenting skills and education, and you will work as a team to keep your baby healthy and well-adjusted throughout every stage of childhood.
