Congratulations! A new child is one of the happiest and most rewarding experiences in life. Big changes are coming for you and your family! Try the suggestions and resources below to help prepare for your baby’s arrival.
Whether you are expecting your first baby or your fourth, all families can benefit from a prenatal visit. This complimentary visit allows you to meet our providers and staff, visit our clinic, find out about office policies, ask any questions you may have about your baby, and to decide if you feel comfortable in our practice. Please download and complete the prenatal registration form prior to your visit or feel free to complete when you come in for your appointment.
ACP encourages your family to choose a Primary Care Provider (PCP). Your PCP will lead your care team to ensure that the care you receive at ACP is continuous and comprehensive. If you deliver at either Providence Alaska Medical Center or Alaska Regional Hospital, please notify the hospital staff of your PCP and they will contact ACP. One of our physicians will provide admission, discharge, and any additional care your newborn needs while in the hospital. They will also coordinate with their team to schedule your newborn’s first well child visit, typically at 3-5 days of age. ACP is pleased to offer these well child checks as a home visit or as an appointment at our practice. Please let us know if you are interested in having this visit from the comfort of your home and we will gladly do what we can to accommodate this request. If you deliver at a birth center or home, please contact ACP within 24 hours of birth so that we can arrange for similar follow up.
