Expectant Parents Q&A

When should expectant parents begin working with a pediatrician?

Ideally, expectant parents begin meeting with a pediatrician as soon as they make the decision to pursue parenthood. While this may seem like an early start, events tend to happen quickly once pregnancy occurs. Finding a pediatrician you trust allows you to check one important item off your to-do list. 

Of course, parents are welcome to come in and meet the Las Vegas Pediatrics team no matter where they are in their journey. Dr. Kuriakose loves meeting new parents and welcoming them into the practice family. 

How do prenatal care visits support expectant parents?

Once you’re expecting, it’s perfectly normal to have a long list of questions and worries. After all, welcoming a child into the world is one of the most monumental tasks most of us will ever encounter. 

Prenatal care visits focus on tracking your baby’s development. They also ensure that expectant mothers weather the challenges of pregnancy and sustain optimal health. 

During your visits, you have plenty of time to ask questions and explore areas of concern. No topic is off limits, and you’re encouraged to take advantage of this time to get the answers and guidance you need. Once your baby arrives, you can transition seamlessly into newborn care. 

What kinds of issues are most expectant parents concerned about?

Every expectant parent has a unique experience as they prepare to meet their little one. Even within the same family, a mother and father can have very different worries and expectations. 

At Las Vegas Pediatrics, expectant parents can rely on Dr. Kuriakose for answers. Guidance is always provided using science-backed information.  

Some expectant parents worry about how their family dynamics will change once the baby arrives. Worrying about how older siblings will adapt is common. 

For others, finding a way to balance parenthood and career obligations is an area of focus. Many parents have concerns about their return to work even before they reach the final stages of pregnancy. The importance and safety of immunization is also a common topic. 

No matter what questions or concerns you have, Dr. Kuriakose is here to help. Get started today by booking an initial visit online or over the phone. You can also call the office during normal business hours to find a time that fits your busy schedule.
