Your First Appointment:

We consider our prenatal classes as your opportunity to meet your Raleigh children’s doctor for the first time. Some of the topics we address during these classes include:

How to prepare your home for a newborn

What to expect in the first weeks of life

How to prepare to breastfeed your baby

When to worry (and when not to worry) about illness

Your babies sleep (and what to expect for your own night)

What to expect in your baby's development

How to keep your baby safe, both inside the home and out

What to expect of your pediatrician

We hope and expect that our free prenatal education classes in our Raleigh pediatrician's office at Carolina Kids Pediatrics begin to help you answer these and many other questions.
