I am 28 weeks along and was just wondering when should i start looking for pediatricians?
I would start anytime soon, because once you get one it's nice to be able to stick to the same one for a long time, so your baby will be comfortable around the doctor. I mean a month or two ahead of time would be a great time.
Hey! Im 29 weeks and im going to start looking soon. My due date is SEP/14/10 but, 5% of babies are born on there due dates... Its important you find one that you live close to and you trust to handle all your babies health needs. Be picky.
You can start when you are ready i recommend as soon as possible call around to different ped's in your area ask them if they have a meet the doctor appt you can make so you have the chance to sit down meet them and kinda get a understanding of how their practice works! If you find one you really like try them to see how it goes i will say ask questions about any concerns you have they are there to help you understand everything Good luck Baby's are an absoulte Miracle :)
I would start looking into pediatricians now. Most hospitals want to know before discharge, where I delivered I wasn't allowed to leave with my son until I had a pediatrician.
I started looking at pediatricians around 32 weeks. I went and met with them ahead of time so I would know that I felt comfortable talking with them. Any time you have a minute is a good time to start looking. Don't wait to long though, some babies come a bit early and you could find yourself having your little one at 37 or 38 weeks.
i started looking at 24 weeks.
