East Bay Pediatrics supports new moms through their transition to parenthood. We have been screening for post-partum depression and are now expanding that screening process. We also have both physicians and a certified lactation nurse who are aware of signs of maternal depression and anxiety and know when to refer to mental health services.
We know you have heard a lot about measles lately. We at East Bay Pediatrics want to reassure you that all of our patients are held to a minimum vaccine requirement. All of our patients 2 years of age and older (and most after their one year old well visit) should already be vaccinated against measles.
Our beloved Marcia Charles-Mo retires today. She has been an energetic, dedicated physician in our practice for 34 years! She hopes to spend a lot of time gardening, traveling, and spending time with her granddaughter.
We had a party to send her off, complete with many memories, tears, hugs, and a song written and performed by Beth, Cathy, and Adona (which they might sing if you ask next time you're in Orinda). She took this cute picture with the very last patients she saw. Marcia, we will all miss you dearly but wish you the best in retirement.
In case you would like to follow along with her post-EBP activities, Marcia has started a blog at dr-marcia.com. No medical questions please!

There is much in the news about children not being vaccinated and the recent spread of measles in two counties around Portland, OR (see state DPH websites here and here for more information). Since 2016, California law does not allow personal belief exemptions for vaccines; children are required to be fully vaccinated to enter school unless there is a medical reason that the child cannot receive vaccines. As you may already know, East Bay Pediatrics also requires patients to meet a minimum vaccine requirement in order to decrease risk to any of our other patients.
