Yes. He works out of the hospital I'll be delivering at. I'll also be switching my other three kids to him too

Yes. We chose one around 25-26 weeks. We found ours after attending an open house they held. The most important facets were emergency availability, hours of operation, and we really liked that they visit babies at our hospital of delivery, so he will be seen by his actual pediatrician for his hospital well checks. :)

they usually see the pedi within a day or 2 of leaving the hospital. as for the insurance, the way mine works, i call my insurance company when baby is born while still in the hospital, insurance faxes them something, the dr fills it out, faxes it back and im able to take baby to pedi. then when i get babies birth certificate and SS card i officially add baby to my insurance.
