Expecting

 

Congratulations!

Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life. Nothing is more rewarding than the privilege of caring for this new life and providing an environment in which both you and your child will thrive and develop. Choosing the pediatrician that can best care for your child is an important decision. At Rocky Hill Pediatrics, we share your joy and enthusiasm and look forward to the opportunity to partner with you on the exciting journey of raising a child.

Getting Acquainted

Please feel free to call our office if you have additional questions about our practice or medical providers.  Or, if you prefer, call today to schedule a free, 15 minute prenatal meeting. During this meeting, you will meet with one of our doctors, have a chance to ask questions about our practice and the office. We typically schedule these meetings at 8:30 am to accommodate working parents and it is the most convenient time for our providers as well.  

Upon Arrival

When you go to the hospital in labor, simply tell your obstetrician and the hospital staff that you have chosen Rocky Hill  Pediatrics as your child's pediatrician. Our office will be notified of your baby's birth by the hospital staff.  If you deliver at Hartford Hospital, a Rocky Hill physician or a pediatrician from one of our three covering practices will come to see your baby within 24 hours of delivery. If you deliver at another hospital, a hospital based pediatrician will care for your baby while he or she is there.  It is important that we see your baby within 72 hours of hospital discharge (or earlier if recommended by the hospital pediatrician.) Upon discharge, please contact our office about scheduling your baby's first visit to our office.
