Are you searching for breastfeeding support in Brooklyn or Manhattan?

At Premier Pediatrics, we understand the various terminologies used, such as breastfeeding, chestfeeding, nursing, or bodyfeeding. Our team is dedicated to providing you with the best possible support and information to help you meet your breastfeeding goals.

Heading our dedicated breastfeeding support program is Julie Capiola, MD. As both a pediatrician and a lactation consultant, Dr. Capiola brings a unique blend of expertise and perspective to every interaction, ensuring that you and your baby receive personalized care and guidance.

In the past, parents often received conflicting advice from different sources, including pediatricians, doulas, and lactation consultants. Premier Pediatrics aims to change that by partnering with our community colleagues in Brooklyn and Manhattan. We work together as a united team to ensure you receive consistent and seamless support on your breastfeeding journey.

For your convenience, we have in-house lactation consultants and collaborate with respected community colleagues. To get you started, we proudly present ‘Lactation Essentials,’ a comprehensive breastfeeding primer authored by Meema Spadola, a renowned Brooklyn doula with over 20 years of experience in assisting new parents.
