Attendance at Childbirth

When a baby is born there should be a paediatrician to see the little new human being, just to check that everything is fine.

You can choose your paediatrician before birth and let the gynaecologists’ secretary book the paediatrician for the birth. If a paediatrician has been appointed to you, you may want to use him, or you may want to change the paediatrician. All the information that a paediatrician needs is in the Road to Health Book that is given when you and your baby are discharged from hospital.
