Expecting Mothers

Getting setup with SouthernMED as your pediatrician is simple!

If you are pregnant and you would like your baby to become our patient after they are born, all you will need to do is to let your OB or the hospital where you are delivering know that your child will be our patient. They will notify us once the baby is born.

We love partnering with expecting mothers.

If you give birth at Lexington Medical Center, Palmetto Health Baptist, or Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge, one of our providers will visit you and your baby in the hospital and they will let you know when to make your first visit to our office. If you give birth at any other hospital, one of the hospital’s providers will see you while you are still in the hospital, and they will let you know when to come to our office after being discharged.

Did you know that we offer lactation services for our breastfeeding mamas? Find out more here.

we love hearing from our patients

Every person in this office is caring and real. They will listen to you and ease your fears and let you know that everything you are doing is good. They answer questions fully and make sure you are confident with the answer when you leave. Dr. Pruitt is absolutely amazing with the kids, he puts them at ease quickly and jokes with them to keep them laughing! The nurses are super nice and understanding if something goes wrong or my kiddo does something embarrassing! So thankful this practice opened! Love Dr. Pruitt and his staff in Batesburg!!!!
