At UM Pediatrics at Midtown, our doctors work together with parents to keep kids healthy. One aspect of this team approach to pediatric primary care is that we try to be a resource for parents as they guide their families in healthy living.
And we know healthy living begins at birth. That's why we have a lactation consultant available for appointments, if you need some help with breastfeeding.
We also have created these health resources to answer common questions.
