Dr. Parga-Belinkie is an assistant professor of clinical pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Her interests and expertise in infant care are varied and far reaching. She is an excellent communicator and can speak on a wide range of topics. Her favorites include: breastfeeding, neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS or neonatal withdrawal from medications), prematurity, follow up for infants, and their development in and outside the NICU.

 

Aside from being a doctor, Joanna is also a mother. She has 2 young children ages 1 and 3. Being a mother changed her pediatric and neonatal practice for the better. She understands the joys and challenges of parenthood intimately and feels confident speaking and writing about them.
