Your Baby Needs a Doctor
Choosing a doctor for your baby is an important decision – one that you will need to make before the end of your pregnancy. While it is recommended that you find a doctor by your third trimester, it’s never too early to start thinking about who will care for your newborn and help you and your baby off to a healthy start.
