For Expectant Parents

If you’re expecting a baby, come to an open house to learn about our pediatricians. We’re here to help you with all of your newborn’s needs.

Bringing a baby into the world is an exciting time for parents. We know your baby deserves the best care from the start. Choosing a pediatrician is an important first step in starting your baby’s health off on the right track.

You may want to get to know your child’s care provider before he or she is even born — especially if you are aware that specialty services may be needed. It’s also helpful to make sure that office location, hours and staffing work for you and your schedule.

Children’s National primary care pediatricians and nurse practitioners are skilled in caring for newborns and children. They are ready to work with you to keep your child happy and healthy. Services may include:

  • Well child check-ups and immunizations
  • Urgent and sick appointments
  • Breastfeeding support and infant nutrition
  • Crib and car safety
