Free Prenatal Care Visits

Fertile Crescent strongly encourages expecting parents to find a pediatrician long before the birth date arrives. We offer free prenatal care visits as an opportunity for Baton Rouge parents to ask all the burning questions on their mind, such as what happens after the delivery process. Parents are free to discuss how the pregnancy and prenatal care are going, although this initial interview is more about getting to know who you are. The more information Dr. Despinasse has prior to your newborn’s first checkup, the better he is able to treat your child and offer a wellness strategy tailored to your baby’s specific health care needs.

Dr. Despinasse and the Fertile Crescent staff strive to provide Baton Rouge with leading pediatric care in a comfortable environment. Use this complimentary visit to schedule your child’s first checkups, discuss an immunization schedule and begin to develop a comprehensive plan for your child’s care. The best part #8212; it’s free. Prenatal care visits can be scheduled by calling our office at 225.924.7343 or by using the contact.
