Expectant Parents & Newborn Care at Town & Country Pediatrics
Congratulations on your growing family! We’ve consolidated helpful resources below to help you learn about pre-registration, picking a pediatrician and preparing for your baby.
Meet & Learn Events at Town & Country Pediatrics
It’s important that you feel comfortable with your pediatrician and at home at your primary care practice. To help you determine if our practice is a good fit for your family, we offer free, virtual prenatal group events.
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 Town & Country Pediatrics.
Town & Country Pediatrics’ Visits at Delivery Hospital
Prentice Women’s Hospital: If you deliver at Prentice Women’s Hospital, one of our pediatricians will visit you and your newborn in the hospital and manage your child’s care. Please make sure to indicate to the hospital that you will be working with Town & Country Pediatrics by selecting one of our pediatricians in their pre-registration form and mentioning it when you check in to the hospital.
All Other Hospitals: If you do not deliver at Prentice, 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 with us after discharge. Please request a copy of your notes to be faxed to our office (312.227.9551) 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 informationon what to expect in each of your visits, refer to our Well-Visit and Immunization Schedule.
