Newborn Care

Congratulations! We enjoy the privilege of providing expert guidance and medical care for your child from birth. You may even start with Seahurst Pediatrics beforehand with a Prenatal Visit to meet and greet your future pediatrician.

Relax and enjoy the time leading up to parenthood. We do not require anything before your child is born. At the time of birth, simply identify Seahurst Pediatrics as where you will go for your baby's care, even if you have not chosen a specific pediatrician. We visit all newborns coming to our practice and delivered at Highline Hospital. If your child requires more specialized medical care, then we may consult with or transfer care to a neonatologist in the hospital.

Most newborns will have a first office visit within one week of discharge from the hospital. This is followed by our series of Well Child Check-ups with discussion of your concerns, growth, development, vaccines and what to expect as your child grows. Finally, our services include same-day appointment availability 365 days every year if concerns arise about your baby, 24-hour nurse advice by phone, and medical information via Pediatric Advisor on our website.
