You are about to welcome a new member of your family, and we are excited to welcome your family to our practice. Allegro Pediatrics offers complimentary “get-to-know-you” visits with the pediatrician of your choice, to make sure you find the right fit for you and your baby. These visits are offered by most of our doctors and are not required, but may be helpful in finding a doctor that is the right fit for your family. Just browse our care team listing and call (425) 827-4600 to schedule an appointment.
To give newborns a healthy start, our doctors will see your baby for their first checkup at Overlake Medical Center, Evergreen Hospital, and Swedish Issaquah Campus.
Once you’ve decided to bring your baby to Allegro Pediatrics, we hope to make the path from delivery to your first appointment as simple and worry-free as possible.
When Your Baby is Born
If you are delivering your baby at Evergreen Hospital, Overlake Medical Center, or Swedish Issaquah Campus, a doctor from our practice will see your baby for the first time in the hospital. If your child requires more specialized medical care, then our doctors may consult with or transfer care to a neonatologist in the hospital.
When filling out your hospital paperwork, simply identify Allegro Pediatrics as where you will go for your baby’s care, even if you have not chosen a specific pediatrician.
Your Baby’s First Appointment
Many babies will be seen at a post-partum follow-up visit for mother and baby in the hospital, a couple of days after being discharged. Most newborns have their first visit to our clinics at 1-2 weeks old.
If you are delivering at a hospital other than those listed above, your first visit to our offices would take place when your baby is 1-3 days old.
Protecting Your Baby Before Birth
Enjoy this special time as you prepare for your baby’s birth. In order to protect both mom and baby, we strongly recommend the flu and Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) vaccines for all members of the family, especially mothers, during each pregnancy. Anyone who will be caring for the baby should also be up-to-date on their vaccines.
