Prenatal Visits Q & A

What are prenatal visits?

Prenatal visits are meetings with a pediatrician before you have your baby. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends all parents-to-be schedule a prenatal visit. These visits help establish a trusting relationship with the pediatrician and ensure the newborn baby gets the medical support they need from the start.

Dr. Pillai provides prenatal visits at her practice for all parents-to-be, including those with a high-risk pregnancy. The pediatrician and her staff provide compassionate care, treating all their patients like family.  

When do I schedule prenatal visits?

You should schedule prenatal visits with Dr. Pillai during your last trimester of pregnancy. For most parents-to-be, Dr. Pillai only needs to schedule one prenatal visit before you have the baby. 

However, if you have a high-risk pregnancy, she may have you return to the office after reviewing your pregnancy records to talk to you about any special health needs your baby may have.  

What happens during prenatal visits?

You can expect personalized and attentive care during your prenatal visit with Dr. Pillai. She asks detailed questions about your medical and pregnancy history. She also asks how this pregnancy is going and if you have any concerns about complications.

Dr. Pillai also talks to you about your birth plan for delivery and asks about your feeding plans, spending time talking with you about the benefits of breastfeeding. 

After Dr. Pillai completes her interview, she encourages you to ask questions about the type of care she provides and what you can expect.

If you choose Dr. Pillai as your baby’s pediatrician, you can expect your first newborn visit within 24 hours after birth while you’re still in the hospital. 

What are the benefits of prenatal visits?

Prenatal visits with Dr. Pillai offer many benefits to you and your new baby. First, it gives you an opportunity to meet your child’s pediatrician before you start newborn care, establishing a line of communication and trust.

Prenatal visits also benefit your baby, ensuring you have access to all the health services you need as soon as your baby is born.
