If You Are Expecting

If you are expecting…

Congratulations! We are looking forward to meeting you and your newborn.

Please note that the physicians at our Del Mar location are not currently accepting new patients.  All 3 physicians at Coast Pediatrics Carmel Valley ARE accepting new patients, including newborns.  We find that things go most smoothly if we meet before the baby is born.  We would be delighted to schedule a prenatal visit for you with your doctor of choice.  Please contact the Carmel Valley office at 858-755-7337 to arrange your complimentary prenatal visit, which may either be via telephone or in person.

We care for newborns at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, and Drs. Wood and Del Re care for their newborns at Scripps Encinitas.  When registering for your admission, please list Coast Pediatrics Carmel Valley or the individual doctor’s name as your pediatrician. The hospital will notify us when your new baby arrives. We will visit your newborn each morning until you go home. If you have a baby boy and choose to have him circumcised, we can perform this procedure at the hospital or in the office.

If delivered at a different facility, your baby will be cared for by pediatricians on staff at that hospital. Once you leave the hospital, we would be delighted to take over.

Your newborn’s first office visit will be 1-3 days after leaving the hospital. Please call our office to schedule this appointment when you are discharged.  To save time at your first appointment, here are some forms you may want to review before your visit:
