Pre-Registration Process Before Delivery
Expectant families will pre-register in two separate locations prior to delivery. Please review our Pre-Registration Tip Sheet to learn how to register with your delivery hospital and Chicago Area Pediatrics.
Chicago Area Pediatrics’ Visits at Delivery Hospital
NorthShore University Health System: Evanston Hospital: If you will be delivering at Evanston Hospital, one of our pediatricians will visit you and your newborn in the hospital and manage your child’s care. Evanston Hospital requires that you select a pediatrician before your delivery and will notify us when your child is born.
All Other Hospitals: If you do not deliver at NorthShore University HealthSystem, no need to worry. While we will not be able to visit you at the hospital, a pediatrician at your hospital will instruct you to follow up with us after discharge. Please request a copy of your notes to be faxed to our office (312.227.9680) You may also request a physical copy you can bring to your appointment.
Schedule of Newborn Visits
Newborns visit their pediatricians frequently during their first few months of life. The focus of these appointments is to monitor their health, growth and development, and any medical needs. For more information what to expect in each of your visits, refer to our Well-Visit and Immunization Schedule.
