Choosing a pediatrician just got a little easier

Preparing for a new baby starts with primary care.

Babies and children are not just small adults - their healthcare needs are different. As a baby grows and develops, a healthcare provider is essential for routine care as well as in the event of illness and injury. Let us help you find the perfect pediatrician who can provide that specialized care.

Lactation Support

Children’s Hospital New Orleans supports the statement by the American Academy of Pediatrics that breastmilk is a natural and beneficial source of nutrition and provides the healthiest start for an infant. Our team offers follow up lactation support in an outpatient setting.

Research shows that breastmilk offers many health benefits for infants and mothers. Some benefits of breastmilk include:

  • Natural source of the nutrients your baby needs
  • Less risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
  • Enhances newborn brain development
  • Less risk your baby will be overweight
  • Less risk of diabetes for your baby and you
  • Less risk of ovarian and breast cancer for mother

Our team cares for both mom and baby, provide ongoing lactation support, and offer growth and nutrition guidance.

We accept Louisiana Medicaid and nearly all major insurances.
