I'm planning on giving birth at a free-standing birth center. One of my midwives told me at my appointment today that she doesn't think I should have to bring my newborn in for a pediatrician wellness check until after two weeks because the midwives will be doing baby/mother wellness checks at our home before then including jaundice and PKU screening. One point she really stressed is that she felt baby and I should stay in the comforts of our own home and not go into a clinic where he could be exposed to viruses and such. When I had my prenatal consult with our planned pediatrician a couple of weeks ago, the pediatrician made it very clear that she wanted me to bring the baby in on day 3 so that she could do her own wellness check and give him a Hep B vaccine (our midwife had stated that it would be fine to push the Hep B vaccine back to the 2 month mark especially if we were not going out much). So I'm confused because I feel like I'm getting conflicting info but can see reasons for both sides. If the midwives are doing the early wellness checks the only reason I can see for bringing the baby in to the pediatrician around that time is to start the Hep B vaccine series as per their suggested schedule. Any suggestions?
