Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life. Nothing is more rewarding than the privilege of caring for this new life and providing an environment in which both you and your child will thrive and develop. Choosing the pediatrician that can best care for your child is an important decision. At Vero Beach Pediatrics, we share your joy and enthusiasm and look forward to the opportunity in partnering with you on the exciting journey of raising a child.
In order to schedule your baby’s first appointment, simply call us when your baby is being discharged from the hospital. After that, we recommend following The American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations for routine well-care visits: 3-5 days, 2, 4 & 6 months followed by 9, 12, 15, 18-months, 24 and 30 months, and then annually from 3 years until 21 years. Depending on your individual needs we may require newborns back in 2-4 weeks.
The second Wednesday of each month our physicians do a pre-natal class in our office which gives parents a chance to meet and greet the team. Our team goes over everything a new parent needs to know when they first bring a beautiful baby home and even teach parents precious life saving techniques like CPR. In this forum parents are able to ask our physicians questions in a relaxed environment.
Please feel free to call our office with any questions at (772) 569-3212 or to schedule your in-person pre-natal class!
And again, CONGRATULATIONS!! Enjoy this very exciting time!
