Doctor Tips, Weeks 27-40

Week 29

Think it’s too early to pick a pediatrician? Think again! More about week 29.

Two things you might want to start thinking about is who your baby’s doctor will be, and how you plan to feed your little one. Ask around for pediatrician recommendations from friends and family, and consider making a prenatal appointment with them to see if you are a good fit. This is your time to get your questions answered, such as are there evening or weekend clinic appointments, and if I need breastfeeding help, do you have a lactation consultant? Speaking of lactation, if you plan to breastfeed (or aren’t sure and want more info), sign up for a breastfeeding class now! These prenatal courses can be so helpful in getting you off to the right start with nursing, and can help ease your anxiety if you’ve never done it before.

    1. Hi Oby, I’m not sure if I understand your question, but your due date is a (really good!) estimation of when your baby will arrive. Only a small percentage of babies are actually born on their due date, but usually are pretty close to it! Good luck!
