Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life. Nothing is more rewarding than the privilege of caring for this new life and providing an environment in which both you and your child will thrive and develop. Choosing the pediatrician that can best care for your child is an important decision. At Timber Lane Pediatrics, we share your joy and enthusiasm and look forward to the opportunity in partnering with you on the exciting journey of raising a child.
Please call if you would like to arrange a prenatal "get acquainted" appointment to meet your baby's doctor and ask any questions you might have. We are also happy to answer any questions you might have by phone.

Our office will be notified of your baby's birth by the hospital staff. While your baby is in the hospital, the UVM pediatric hospitalist team will see your baby. Upon discharge, please contact our office about scheduling your baby's first visit to our office. We offer certified lactation services and are happy to help you breastfeed your baby.
