As mamas, heck as parents (we’ll include dads in here too) we all worry about our kids. From the second we find out we are pregnant our anxiety worsens and if we didn’t have it before, we are now plagued with the worst case. We want the best for our children; physically, emotionally and mentally and as soon as we become parents we start to worry.
One of my biggest worries as a parent has been “what if they are sick, like really sick and we don’t know about it?” “What if they are suffering and we have no idea.” This worry can look different as baby grows. As a mother of a fussy, colicky newborn (I mean really, what baby isn’t?!) those thoughts went through my head every time baby cried. Then, as baby grew, my worry grew in many ways. Every abnormal action my first thought would be, “something is wrong.” Now, baby is a toddler and has no problem telling me when something is wrong and needs a “boo-boo kissed”. So instead of worrying about the sickness or hurt they are so quickly to tell you about, I worry about the sickness that could possibly be hiding among all the good.
Crazy right?! We could easily be a constant basket case ready to snap at any moment with worry. One of the best ways I have found to help ease this worry is by having high-quality pediatric care to turn to. Having doctors who care about my kiddos and are experts in their field is so comforting and reassuring. Whether it is a common condition of childhood or a more serious condition, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is the best place to turn. They provide exceptional healthcare services to all children, for every possibly need.
Take that worry!
Not only are they one of the BEST children’s hospitals in the US but they also have several primary care practices and specialty care centers – taking care of your child’s every need.
The Benefits of High-Quality Pediatric Care
Here are some of the benefits of CHOP:
• The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is one of the top-ranked children’s hospitals in the United States (by U.S. News and
World Report) and is the highest ranked children’s hospital in the region.
• The CHOP Care Network – more than 50 locations providing primary care, specialty care, outpatient surgery and urgent
care, as well as community hospital partnerships – makes it easier for parents to access the right care in the right place.
• When your child receives primary care from a CHOP pediatrician, you’ll be just a referral way from CHOP’s suburban
Specialty Care Centers where our pediatric specialists provide the same level of care you’d find at our Main Hospital.
• There are a ton of CHOP doctors throughout the region, but they have a singular mission – keep the well child
healthy, and help the sick child get better. For big things, little things, and everything in between, we’re right by your side.
Having top-of-the-line doctors available and high-quality pediatric care is sure to ease some of your worry, if not most of it. Next time you are concerned for your child’s health, be sure to give CHOP a call.
We currently have an appointment scheduled with their pediatric dermatology division for my youngest. As CHOP is the BEST in the Northeast, they are worth the drive. The staff has been nothing but helpful and gracious as we have gone through the process of getting this appointment. We look forward to speaking with the doctors and experiencing for ourselves the high-quality pediatric care that is recommended.
