Prenatal Meet and Greet Q & A

What is a prenatal meet and greet?

A prenatal meet and greet is a crucial first step in establishing your child’s medical home. If you’re in the third trimester of your pregnancy, Angel Kids Pediatrics recommends scheduling a prenatal meet and greet at one of the conveniently located offices.

This visit presents an opportunity to learn more about newborn care, to build a relationship with your child’s pediatrician, and to build a relationship between you and your provider. A prenatal meet and greet at Angel Kids Pediatrics creates a foundation for a healthy provider-family relationship, learning about your prenatal and obstetric health history, and gives guidance about early newborn care and safety. 

What are the objectives of a prenatal meet and greet?

A prenatal meet and greet at Angel Kids Pediatrics has several objectives, including:

  • To provide a foundation for a healthy pediatrician-family relationship
  • To learn about your prenatal and obstetric health history
  • To introduce guidance about early infant care and infant safety
  • To identify psychosocial factors that might impact a child’s development, like addictions, for example

Likewise, prenatal meet and greets present an opportunity to interact with your child’s future doctor. If you’re feeling nervous about the baby’s arrival, you can ask questions or discuss concerns.

What are some of the topics covered during a prenatal meet and greet?

At Angel Kids Pediatrics, the team tailors prenatal meet and greets to each patient’s needs. Still, there are several topics commonly covered during these visits, including:

  • Chronic medical issues that run in your family such as high cholesterol or Type 1 diabetes
  • Plans for feeding, circumcision, child care, and support systems
  • Concerns regarding alcohol, tobacco, or drug use
  • Your attitudes toward immunizations and other types of preventive healthcare

Answer each of your provider’s questions as honestly as possible. The team isn’t there to judge you. They’re there to better understand your lifestyle and environment, so they can help you prepare for your baby’s arrival. 

What happens after a prenatal meet and greet?

At the end of a prenatal meet and greet, you have the opportunity to enroll your child in pediatric care. You can also ask questions and/or bring up any concerns that you have.

If you decide to partner with the team at Angel Kids Pediatrics, they monitor the third trimester of your pregnancy and help you prepare for your baby’s arrival.
