Preventive Care

As a new parent, you may be tempted to push aside your own care. However, preventive care, like physical exams, screenings, and vaccines, are equally important for you and your baby. Don’t skip your postpartum appointment. At this appointment, your doctor can make sure you’re doing well physically, mentally, and emotionally. CDPHP members receive many preventive services at no cost when provided by an in-network doctor.
