Pregnancy In Philadelphia

 

First and foremost, CONGRATULATIONS!  Whether or not this is your first pregnancy or a subsequent one, bringing new little ones into the world is quite an experience, especially in a new city!  Philadelphia has some of the best hospitals in the country (CHoP has been consistently rated the #1 children's hospital in the nation), so have no fear!  However, it can be overwhelming to be in a new city, so we're hoping this information will help.
