Newborn Meet & Greet Q & A

What is a newborn meet and greet?

It’s a virtual 10-minute “getting to know you” visit for you to become acquainted with your new pediatric care providers and the facility.

Sellwood Medical Clinic specializes in family, pediatric, and internal medicine. This means that they’ll care for your baby in infancy, toddlerhood, childhood, adolescence, and throughout their whole adult life as well. Because they’re your go-to providers for all your child’s general medical care, it makes sense to spend a little time getting familiar with the team and the facility during a comfortable, no-pressure visit. A meet and greet is just a “talking” appointment, so you don’t need to prepare for any vaccinations or exams. 

When do I schedule a meet and greet?

We encourage you to schedule a virtual meet and greet a few months before your family is due to deliver. Just get in touch with Sellwood Medical Clinic to arrange a meet and greet time that’s convenient for you. 

What questions should I ask at a newborn meet and greet?

The newborn meet and greet is a great chance to ask the pediatric care providers about their philosophy of care. Inquire about breastfeeding, vaccinations, sleep schedule, nutrition, and other things that you have questions or concerns about.

It’s also important to discuss a future appointment schedule. Find out how often your pediatrics providers recommend appointments and ask what you should do in case of an emergency. 

How do I prepare my baby for a newborn meet and greet?

Meet and greets can be very exciting for new parents, it is a great idea to have your questions written down so that no question goes unanswered.

We would also encourage you to contact the insurance carrier that your baby will be on, and make sure that they consider Sellwood Medical Clinic as in network—so that there are no surprises for you, once your baby is here.
