Congratulations! We would love to have you join our Children's HealthCare Family.


Expecting?

You have come to the right practice!  Our Pediatricians, International Board Certified Lactation Consultants and Certified Childbirth Educators offer a wide array of classes to help you to prepare for the arrival of your baby. Please click on our class links to learn more.

We want to meet you!

Come meet our genuine, kind, caring staff!  Children's HealthCare is the most family-centered comprehensive pediatric  practice in the Lehigh Valley.  No where else in the Valley can you visit your pediatrician, the Lehigh Valley Breastfeeding Center, and a pediatric dentist all in one building.

You are cordially invited to come meet with our doctors. 

How can you meet us? - two options

Option One - Prenatal Meet 'n Greet 

We believe this is the best option for new parents, as you will get to meet several of the members of our team of pediatric professionals (Pediatricians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and Lactation Consultants).  We will discuss our office philosophy, provide a tour of the office and provide anticipatory guidance for the upcoming birth or adoption. 

Register for one of our dates below:

Option Two - Prenatal Office Visit

Schedule a time to meet 1:1 with one of our Pediatricians.  This comprehensive prenatal visit is a full office visit, during which expectant parent(s) can discuss their needs, interests and concerns, while receiving anticipatory guidance for their upcoming birth or adoption.  This option also gives you the opportunity to talk 1:1 with a physician about any concerns you may have regarding your baby's health.  Call today to schedule your, personal, complementary prenatal visit, where you will tour our office and meet a member of our team.

Hospital Affiliations

Affiliation, means our pediatricians have privileges to care for you newborn in the hospital  We ARE NOT a practice owned and operated by a hospital.  We are a small, locally-owned and operated practice.  Only our providers care for our patients, never a "covering physician."  

Our pediatricians are affiliated with the following hospitals and can see your baby in the newborn nursery at:

  • Lehigh Valley Health Network & Lehigh Valley Children's Hospital, Cedar Crest & Muhlenberg Campuses

  • St. Luke's Hospital & University Health Network, Allentown & Bethlehem Campuses

Be sure to inform your obstetrics team and hospital staff that you would like to have Children's HealthCare oversee your baby's care.  Your baby will receive comprehensive, coordinated care from your child's first day of life.  Your newborn will have a thorough head-to-toe assessment in your hospital room daily, so we can discuss our findings one-on-one with you.  

Board Certified Providers

Our team of Children's HealthCare Pediatricians and Nurse Practitioners are all board certified. All of our pediatricians are International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC), Certified Breastfeeding Specialists, Certified Lactation Counselors and members of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.  No matter what your feeding method of choice, we will be there to support you and your family from birth.

Additional In-hospital Services Offered

We come to the local hospitals daily to see any newborns on our service.

We perform cirumcisions on our patients, at your request, both in the hospital and in our office.  

Did you know? Our physicians are able to diagnose and develop a plan of care for newborns with tongue tie  (otherwise known as ankyloglossia), while your baby is still in the hospital setting, if deemed necessary for feeding issues.
