Most hospitals ask for the name of your pediatrician when you are admitted to deliver your baby. Your baby will be examined by the pediatrician within the first 24 hours of life. If you are delivering at Edward Hospital our doctors will be available to you and your baby. This will give you an opportunity to get answers to any questions you may have at that time. Your first routine well exam for your baby will be at 3 or 4 days of age. If you deliver your baby at a hospital where our doctors are not on staff, please call our office after delivery to arrange your baby's first exam.
