Sonal Patel is a neonatologist who recognized a gap in the transition of care from a hospital delivery to discharge to the first pediatrician visit, so she created a practice that fills that gap from the ground up.  We discuss how she went about doing that and what she thinks every physician, from pathologists to trauma surgeons, need to know about breastfeeding. 

Through residency, fellowship, practice and in personal experiences, she noticed the gaps of postpartum care. In 2017, she founded NayaCare: Newborn Speciality Clinic at Your Doorstep. This month-long evidence-based clinic is viewed as an extension of hospital care. Comprehensive care comprised of a Pediatrician, Lactation, and Counselor is delivered to your doorstep. By bringing care home, stressors are alleviated during this fragile time of maternal healing and family bonding.  She is currently pursuing her Certification of Lactation. She is also an active member of Good Business Colorado, a Strong Economy Working Group, with a focus of bringing paid family leave to Colorado.
