New & Expectant Parents


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.

Breastfeeding Center of Charleston

The Breastfeeding Center of Charleston wants to partner with you so that you can achieve your breastfeeding goals. Our expert team of (IBCLC) physicians and lactation consultants are here to listen to you. Together, we will craft a tailor-made care plan that specifically addresses your needs and goals. We look forward to helping you on your journey!


If you request a circumcision on your 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 three 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.


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.

Emotional Well-being

Along with the joy of giving birth to a baby, many mothers experience some kind of let down.  This may range from baby blues to clinical depression to psychotic depression.  Click here to learn more
