36 Weeks: Your Last Month Of Pregnancy
WELCOME TO YOUR LAST MONTH OF PREGNANCY! Your baby is almost here! You will now see your doctor at least every week. Every extra day your baby has to develop before birth is helpful for their brain development and growth!
Be sure that you have completed this checklist BEFORE you come to the
hospital to deliver your baby:
1. Contact a pediatrician to register your baby as a future patient. When your baby is born, your pediatrician will be notified to see your baby for their first doctor visit.
2. Having a proper car seat installed is a crucial part of baby safety.
√ I have a car seat for my baby.
√ I have checked my car seat expiration date, and it is not expired. (SIX YEARS FROM THE MANUFACTURE DATE)
√ I have read the car seat manual/manufacturer instructions (either the print copy that came with the seat or by looking up the seat model number online).
√ I am familiar with my baby’s car seat to ensure my baby will be properly secured.
√ I have practiced installing the car seat and base in my car.
√ I have made an appointment to have the car seat checked or installed by a certified child passenger safety technician.

Arrange for someone to bring the car seat to your Mother-Baby room. This will allow you to adjust the car seat and straps correctly before the day your baby is discharged.
3. On the day you go home, your approximate discharge time from the hospital will be 11:00 a.m. or earlier. Please have a ride available to help you easily return home.
