Breastfeeding is an important aspect of nutrition for an infant but also a difficult path to navigate for many mothers and infants which is why Pure Direct Pediatrics offers lactation services in Marlboro, NJ. As an internationally board-certified lactation consultant and member of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Breastfeeding, Dr. Syeda Amna Husain has an excellent reputation in the health care community. She is very familiar with the common concerns many mothers face when beginning their lactation journey, such as difficulty with their infant latching, over and under supply of milk, and even how to use a breast pump.

The Pure Direct Difference
Pure Direct Pediatrics is a direct care clinic that allows patients to pay for their care on a membership basis instead of the practice billing the patient's health insurance company. While the rising cost of health care makes it difficult to see a lactation specialist, when you are a patient of Pure Direct Pediatrics, your membership fee covers any visits or services that are rendered at our office, saving you money in the long run. You also have direct access to your physician after hours with their phone number and email in case of urgent or emergency situations. Pure Direct Pediatrics is happy to give you extended appointment hours with no or minimal wait time. If you'd like to be seen by a physician right away, we also offer same-day or next-day appointment slots.
