While Dr. Muñoz specializes in pediatric care for children of all ages, she has a special interest in providing supportive care for newborns and their parents. Dr. Muñoz offers comprehensive newborn well checks that include early interventions and preventative care as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), as well as lactation consultation services. Dr. Muñoz has over three combined years of personal breastfeeding and lactation experience and has had additional training in human lactation, outside of her training as a pediatrician.
Dr. Muñoz has hospital privileges at two hospitals where she can see your newborn baby in the nursery after birth. If you give birth at PIH Whittier Hospital or Whittier Hospital Medical Center, let your nurse and our office know as soon as possible so we can make arrangements to be there.
As a pediatric hospitalist with Kaiser Permanente, Dr. Muñoz has cared for thousands of newborns in the hospital and in the clinic. She can’t wait to meet your precious little one!
