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 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.

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.  

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
  • St. Luke's Hospital & University Health Network, Allentown & Bethlehem Campuses
  • Sacred Heart Hospital & HealthCare System

Only our Physicians care for our patients, never a "covering physician."  We perform circumcisions 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.

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/or 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.

You are cordially invited to come meet with our doctors.  Call today to schedule your, personal, complementary prenatal visit, where you will tour our office and meet our team of pediatric professionals.  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.  

Meet other Moms at our Milk & Coffee New Mom's Group

Open to any mom, who has an interest in meeting other moms, or supporting other moms on their breastfeeding and/or parenting journey. You do not need to be breastfeeding to attend.  There will be refreshments, support, understanding, encouragement and friendship, along with an opportunity to weigh your baby. Before and after feed weights are a great way to ensure your baby is transferring adequate amounts of breastmilk. Guest speakers will, occasionally, be invited to speak with the group, but our main focus is having an enjoyable relaxing atmosphere of mom-to-mom companionship and reassurance.  Our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant or Certified Lactation Counselor will be hosting the event and is willing to discuss any questions, concerns or issues you may be having.

We suggest coming prenatally (before your baby is born) to learn about breastfeeding and gain some mommy support and then return, as soon as your are comfortable after delivery, as the early days are when moms need the most support.
