Breast Feeding

Welcome to our Patient Education page!

Our team of professionals and staff believe that informed patients are better equipped to make decisions regarding their child's health and wellbeing. For your personal use, we have created an extensive patient library covering an array of educational topics, which can be found on the side of each page. Browse through these diagnoses and treatments to learn more about topics of interest to you. Or, for a more comprehensive search of our entire website, enter your term(s) in the search bar provided below.

As always, you can contact our office to answer any questions or concerns.

We understand many women may be apprehensive or unsure at first about breastfeeding vs. bottle-feeding their baby. It’s normal to have many questions related to breastfeeding. Our doctors are here to support you.

La Leche League was founded to give information and encouragement, mainly through personal help, to all mothers who want to breastfeed their babies. The mission of La Leche League is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.

Visit La Leche League for more information about breastfeeding.


In 2018, Dr. Avery and her team made the very difficult decision to close the practice due to relocation.  It was a privilege and honor to serve the children and families of the practice.  Together, a new vision for healthcare was born and it is our hope that each of you will take that seed of innovation with you to your next practice. We, as pediatricians, treasure our time with our young patients and their families and we are grateful for the time spent healing, laughing and learning at The Pediatric Practice. 

To Obtain Medical Records:

We are happy to assist you in the transfer of your child's medical records.  Please have your new pediatrician fax a signed, dated and completed Medical Record Release form to our office at (503) 716-4734.  

If you have any questions, you can call and leave a message at the office and we will return your call as soon as we can.

 

In Your Best Health,  Dr. Avery and Team
