Prenatal Visit in Coppell, TX
Welcoming your new baby to the world can be an incredibly exciting time, and we are here to guide you on your journey. For this reason, The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a prenatal visit. Prenatal visits are an important part of establishing a trusting relationship between our team at Mark9 Pediatrics and your family.
These visits allow you to ask questions about how to keep your new baby safe and how to handle the first few weeks and months of your baby’s life. Additionally, we can help you learn how to bond with your new baby, and anticipate any hurdles like postpartum depression. Dr. Moemeka is your trusted Coppell pediatrician from prenatal care to teenager care.
