New Patients and Expecting Parents

Having a baby is a life changing experience. We would be honored to walk with you through your journey as your child’s pediatrician. A pediatrician is more than someone who cares for your child while they are sick. Many visits to the pediatrician include discussions about caring for your newborn, developmental milestones, growth, and safety. TriHealth aims to provide the highest level of care while showing compassion and kindness to all our patients.

From birth until adulthood, TriHealth doctors are excited to care for your child. Our hospitals offer high level maternity and neonatal care. Our pediatricians are connected to numerous specialists who can also care for your children. Having specialists within our system allows for more efficient referrals and streamlined care for you and your child. Once your child reaches adulthood, our pediatricians will help facilitate the transfer of care to one of the Internal Medicine or Family Medicine doctors. Across the board, our doctors are committed to service and would be honored to serve your family.

Well-Visit Schedule

It is important that a pediatrician sees your child on a routine basis early in life. At these visits, the pediatrician will perform many assessments including weight, length, head circumference, early developmental milestones, and nutrition. These visits are a great opportunity to ask about any concerns you may have about your child. A list of when your child should be seen for their well-child visits is below.

  • Newborn visit- 3-5 days after birth.
  • 1 month
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 1 year
  • 15 months
  • 18 months
  • 2 years
  • 30 months
  • 3 years (then yearly after 3 years)

Breastfeeding Your Baby

Research has shown that breastfeeding is the best option for your baby. Your breast milk is uniquely designed for your baby and provides optimal nutrition and health for as long as you breastfeed. At the TriHealth Breastfeeding Care Center (link TriHealth Breastfeeding Care Center to the Breastfeeding Resources page), our team offers a variety of resources and services to help you achieve your breastfeeding goals.

Transferring Records

Newborns will need to be seen days after leaving the hospital. Before seeing the baby, we’ll need to know the hospital where you plan to or have already delivered your baby so we can request those records.

If your baby, toddler, or child has already seen another physician, we’ll request those records from that provider after you’ve signed a Records Release Form to give us permission.

To protect patient confidentiality, TriHealth is required to obtain a Medical Records Release form – signed and dated by the patient (or parent for minors) – for the release of all medical records, including X-rays and immunization records.

If you move, we will transfer your records to your new physician when you request it. Please allow 7 to 10 business days for the transfer to occur.There is no charge for medical records sent directly to another physician. However, there is a fee (based on the number of pages and accessibility) for records requested for personal use, by an attorney or by an insurance company.


You can access your child’s health records and communicate with their doctor through the My Chart app. As a parent, you can access your child’s MyChart records through your own MyChart account. Please note you have to be signed up with TriHealth MyChart. Follow the link below to get signed up.
