PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE from the parking lot when you arrive for your appointment!
Congratulations upon beginning one of life’s greatest adventures- Parenthood!
Although it will be filled with new responsibilities, frustrations, and concerns, it will be full of countless joys and immeasurable rewards. Being a good parent requires time, effort and patience. It will be a challenge. It is hard to imagine the various demands and situations you will encounter until you have your own children. A new baby can be overwhelming, even scary. These feelings are natural – you are not alone! All parents have questions concerning infant childcare. Our guidelines are only suggestions. They are not the last word, for there are several approved and accepted approaches to the same problems. To prevent confusion caused by parenting suggestions from well-meaning friends, we feel that our advice combined with you own good common sense will be sufficient for you to handle most problems.
During the first few days after your baby comes home, try to rest and regain your strength. Hopefully reading our advice will make life with your baby more relaxed and carefree. The instructions given here will help you meet the needs common to newborn babies and will give you helpful hints on how to keep your baby healthy and happy.
Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any concerns that you may have during this exciting time. All of our doctors are not only trained in the care of newborns, they are also mothers themselves. We have all been there!
Our physicians will be happy to see your newborn after you have been discharged from the hospital. If you would like to see the office and get to know us before your baby arrives, please schedule a prenatal visit by calling the office to schedule at either of our locations. We accept new families from any of the Tampa Bay area hospitals. Unfortunately, we are unable to take new families from birthing centers at this time.
