Breastfeeding Center in Riverhead, NY at Peconic Pediatrics

Peconic Pediatrics is distinguished for its breastfeeding and lactation resources. We offer in-office consultations with Dr. Jennifer Shaer and Dr. Lisa Visentin, board certified pediatricians and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, as well as lactation specialist Deb Bouchard RN, IBCLC, to help both mom and baby accomplish a breastfeeding plan that works for them.
