Dr. Evans and Dr. Jacobs currently work in the clinic only, so whether your newborn is born at a hospital, birthing center, or any other facility, the pediatrician on-call will see and evaluate your baby after birth. Please let the hospital know that your pediatrician is Dr. Kirsten Evans or Dr. Kristen Jacobs at Lawrence Pediatrics.
In general, we like to see our newborns five to seven days after birth, unless the physician in the hospital feels that he or she should be seen sooner or if you have concerns you would like addressed. After the baby is born, please call our office directly and we will make the first appointment with you then.
If you would like to schedule a prenatal meet-and-greet appointment with Dr. Evans or Dr. Jacobs before the baby is born, please call the office at 785-856-9090.
