What happens with your newborn in the hospital and at that first doctor's visit after you go home? No really, what happens? Because as an OB/GYN I don’t know. Once mom and baby are separate, the pediatrician takes over! Lol.
Today’s guest, Dr. Obidi, is here to fill us in on all of that. He is a board certified pediatrician and the CEO of Newborn Prep Academy, an online newborn preparation course. There is a lot of great advice in this episode for how to get the most out of your visits with your baby’s doctor. I love, love, love his “confident moms mindset” approach and I know you will too!
In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:
- When you should start looking for a pediatrician
- Which tests are done in the hospital for baby and why
- What are some of the most common postnatal tests and treatments
- What some of the intervention options are for treating infant health concerns
- Why you shouldn’t panic if your baby loses weight in the first few days
- When you should bring your baby to the pediatrician
- How pediatricians screen for postpartum depression
