Welcome! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biggrinbounce.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bgbounce"> I've lived here for 14 years and love it! We live in Squirrel Hill now.<br><br>
All of us see the same family practice physician. He's very good with the baby and seems to know his stuff. His name is Dr. Joop Offerman (he's Dutch) and he has a nice little office in Point Breeze just south of Fifth & Beechwood (71D bus) so not terribly far from you. He takes most types of insurance.<br><br>
Congratulations on your pregnancy, and let me know if you'd like to meet so I can talk your ear off with all the wisdom I have learned in my months of mothering! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

Hello and welcome. I'm due in September, as my signature will show and have a 2 year old. We live in the Crafton/Greentree area, so our pediatrician would be a bit far away for you. I have a friend in Bloomfield, though, that is due in August. I'll check with her and see if she's found a good ped yet.

Hi there! We live in Stanton Heights, which is very close to Bloomfield. Our family (husband and two sons, 5 and 9) goes to East End Community Health Center (Penn & Negley Aves.). The four doctors there are great - and parents themselves.<br>
Another good resources for connecting with Pgh. area families is:<br><a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PghMamasNetwork/" target="_blank">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PghMamasNetwork/</a><br>
Send me an email if you ever want to meet for coffee...I drive through Bloomfield almost daily! Wish you all the best.
