The Search for a Pediatrician
I have come to the point in the pregnancy where it is time to start thinking about a pediatrician for little Caleb. Since I am new to the area of Northern Kentucky, I am completely clueless as to who a good pediatrician might be. Nick's family has provided some input but honestly I have forgotten the doctors names and I am going to have to ask them again. I have googled pediatrics of northern kentucky, and found a few groups of doctors that I feel as though seem well qualified by their website. However, how do you really ever know if you feel comfortable with them until you meet them? I am actually kind of clueless at where to begin. Do I just call the different offices, and see if they have an opening for my unborn baby? Do you meet the doctors before they care for your little one for the first time? This is a really big decision because they are going to be caring for the most important thing in our life. If any moms to be or moms out there would like to give me advice on how they picked their pediatricians, and what steps I need to take to find the right one I would appreciate it. I have to take paperwork into the hospital within the next week or so, and fill out all my labor/delivery paperwork, and I am suppose to have a pediatrician chosen by that time. HELP!!
