My DD's pediatrician is very pro-breastfeeding. She is younger (mid/late-30s) and has three small children of her own. She is in the office on Tuesdays and Fridays, but is part of a large practice, so there are other doctors available on the off days, if necessary.

Anyway, her name is Sarah N. Elmouchi and she works in the Cascade Pediatrics office in Cascade, Michigan (suburb of G.R.). If you need the address or phone number, let me know.
