New & Expectant Parents

Congratulations!

Having a baby is a miraculous and life changing event. We are here to help you cherish every moment of those first few months! Our family of pediatricians and nurse practitioners cannot wait to meet and welcome your family.

We would love to meet you before your baby arrives to answer any questions you may have about our practice, the care your little one will receive here and any other questions about what to expect when your baby is born. Please call us to set up a time to stop by and meet with a pediatrician.

Circumcision

If you request a circumcision on you newborn boy, our providers will perform the procedure in the hospital. If the child is covered under Absolute Total Care, South Carolina Solutions, or Medicaid Fee-For-Service, please contact our office prior to delivery to set up a payment arrangement if you desire a circumcision for your son. Coastal Pediatric Associates will perform circumcisions in our offices for our established patients. Please contact our office if you have additional questions.

Delivery Day

The hospital will ask you to specify a pediatrician for your child on delivery day. If you deliver at one of the five hospitals where our pediatricians round in the newborn nurseries, we will visit you and your new baby within the first 24 hours of life.

Typically, you and your baby will be seen at our office three days after discharge from the hospital. We are open 7 days a week so finding a convenient appointment will be easy.

Insurance

For newborns, you have thirty days to enroll your child under your health insurance policy. Please make sure your carrier knows the name of your chosen pediatrician at Coastal Pediatric Associates. Read more information here.

Breastfeeding Support

Lactation Consultations are offered Monday - Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm. An appointment is required in advance. Lactation consultation visits are $75 for each baby. Payment is expected upon arrival to service as lactation visits are not billable to insurance.
