Scheduling Follow-Up Visits

Congratulations on your new arrival!

Whether you’re a first-time mom or you already have children, caring for a baby can be both rewarding and challenging. CDPHP® encourages you to seek regular care for you and your baby. Use this list as a guide.

  • Schedule your baby’s first appointment with a pediatrician 24 to 48 hours after you are discharged or as the hospital recommends.
  • Schedule your follow-up postpartum visit with your OB/GYN four to six weeks after delivery.
  • If you’re feeling down or depressed, call your health care provider immediately.

If you are a CDPHP member and need assistance with making a postpartum appointment, please call the CDPHP wellness line at (518) 641-4800 and press 2.
