Twins and higher-order multiples bring multiple blessings, but some children of multiple birth can also face unique health challenges. MD Pediatric Associates specializes in addressing these children’s healthcare needs, giving them the best possible start in life.
With deep experience addressing complications arising from multiple birth – such as low birth weight, prematurity, developmental delays, and long-term disability – our practitioners provide exceptional care for these at-risk patients. At the same time, they provide the tools and support that parents need to cope with the social, emotional, and other concerns that can go hand-in-hand with caring for multiple children and their special needs.
Our board-certified, on-staff lactation consultant, Kellie McElhannon, RN, IBCLC, can also provide special assistance with nursing multiples, ensuring that newborns’ nutritional needs are met while supporting new mothers in meeting their breastfeeding goals.
