Long Island, NY (PRWEB) July 23, 2013
Allied Pediatrics, a large group of individual pediatric practices that have merged resources, has taken their comprehensive breastfeeding medicine services online.
Now available at http://www.Facebook.com/AlliedBreastfeedingSupport, this social media profile was recently created to share up-to-date breastfeeding information with new moms and as an outlet for moms to give each other support. This service is open to all mothers and one does not have to be a patient of Allied Pediatrics to benefit from the page’s online breastfeeding support.
Allied Pediatrics has historically prided itself on its many breastfeeding medicine services, which are largely unparalleled on Long Island and throughout Queens, Orange and Westchester Counties. The group consistently meets and exceeds the requirements set forth in the affordable care act for lactation support.
“Our lactation consultants are always looking for ways to go above and beyond,” says Dr. Jennifer Shaer, a Board Certified Pediatrician as well as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and fellow of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine. “For some time, our breastfeeding support has been coordinated through the pediatricians, some of whom are also International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, which really distinguishes us from other practices. We also offer a free breastfeeding hotline, email support, extended telephone consultations, office visits, prenatal classes, support groups, breast pump rental and sales and even home visits. The Facebook page seemed like a natural next-step. We’re meeting moms where they are to provide the support they need.”
Allied Pediatrics is committed to helping mothers reach their own personal breastfeeding goals, and social media support is now a cornerstone in this effort. “No matter where you are in your breastfeeding journey,” adds Dr. Shaer, “we can create a plan that works for you and your baby.”
