From vaccinations to breastfeeding, the arrival of your long-awaited bundle of joy can be overwhelming. At an Allied Physicians Group pediatric practice, the process of receiving care for your newborn is streamlined, efficient and, most importantly, caring and patient.
Breastfeeding Support Center
In addition to one-on-one care with your pediatrician, we are also proud to offer the Allied Physicians Group Breastfeeding Support Center. The Breastfeeding Support Center contains a network of physicians, nurses and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC). From the very first time you contact us, you speak directly with a healthcare provider to get the answers you seek and the support you want.
If you need breastfeeding help right away, our helpline is recommended by obstetricians & pediatricians all over the tri-state area. Our dedicated staff of Lactation Consultants & Pediatricians have been helping mothers & babies breastfeed successfully for decades.
We also offer email support, in-home consultations, in-office consultations, classes, extended phone consultations, pump sales and rentals and so much more!
Since breastfeeding is a journey unique to each mother and child, we are there for patients until they reach the destination that works best for them.
The pediatricians that comprise Allied Physicians Group adhere to the American Academy of Pediatrics vaccine recommendation. Our doctors feel strongly that informed parents opt to vaccinate their children according to these guidelines. For this reason, we can provide you with the latest, advanced research and medical findings.

Frequently Asked Questions by New Parents
Whether your question is related to giving birth or billing, we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions related to newborn care.
Q. How soon after birth will my pediatrician see my baby?
A. Your APNY pediatrician will see your baby within the first 24 hours.
