Pediatrics

At Yakima Natural Family Medicine, we believe that proper health from the first day of life paves the way for a lifetime of health and well being. We will focus on prevention, healthy breastfeeding, healthy diet and lifestyle to minimize illness and disease.

Well Child Visits:

Well child visits are recommended 2-3 days after birth,  2 weeks of age, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months and 9 months. During the second year of life, routine visits are scheduled at 12 months, 15 months and 18 months. Beginning at 2 years, visits occur yearly.

Additional visits may be scheduled to follow up on concerns about growth, development or physical complaints. At each visit we will take the time to answer all of your questions and concerns.

You will be offered all routine vaccines during your visits, however, our philosophy is that parents become informed about each vaccine and make their own decision about whether to vaccinate their child. You will neither be pressured to vaccinate or not to vaccinate your child.

After Hours Care:

We expect that you will have many questions. Parents find it reassuring that our practice is covered 24 hours a day. It is our intention that you feel well supported in your parenting journey.


If you have an urgent concern after hours, you may try going to www.seattlechildrens.org (then choose Medical Conditions followed by Symptoms A to Z). This is a great resource to determine if you child needs to be seen by a physician and how urgently they should be seen.
