Patient Centered Medical Home
We are pleased to announce that we have been nominated as a Patient Center Medical Home aka PCMH
What is a PCMH? The Patient Centered Medical Home is a care delivery model whereby patient treatment is coordinated through their primary care physician to ensure they receive the necessary care when and where they need it, in a manner they can understand.
The objective is to have a centralized setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients, and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family. Care is facilitated by registries, information technology, health information exchange and other means to assure that patients get the indicated care when and where they need and want it in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.
We at Birmingham Pediatrics + Wellness Center are committed to your child's health. We feel becoming a Patient Centered Medical Home will strengthen our relationship with you, our patients, and enable us to deliver the best overall healthcare to your families.
When you come in at your next visit you will be given a Patient Partnership Agreement that will outline our commitment to you. Please feel free to contact us with any questions!

Meet our Lactation Specialist:
Stephanie Bauer, RN, IBCLC
Hello. My name is Stephanie Bauer, a Registered Nurse (RN) and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I am thrilled to join the staff at Life + Wellness as the Lactation Specialist! I have been an RN since 1997 and earned my IBCLC Certification in 2008. I have spent over eleven years working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital. My inspiration to become a Lactation Specialist came from working closely with critically-ill newborns whose lives benefitted greatly from their own mother’s milk and breastfeeding. Having witnessed the benefits these children received from their mother’s milk and breastfeeding made me want to learn more. I have also witnessed the numerous benefits of breastfeeding with my own two children, Evan (nine years old) and Camden (nine months old). I wholeheartedly believe in the benefits of breast milk and breastfeeding for babies and their mothers. My goal is to create a warm and comfortable environment for breastfeeding mothers to gain support, knowledge, and resources. In doing so, I hope to help mothers and their families understand and embrace the benefits of breastfeeding.
