Philosophy of Care

Providing medical care for your child from birth through early adulthood is one of the great honors of my life. I work with families in my practice to provide evidence-based preventive care to the children in our community. I specialize in breastfeeding medicine and provide clinical care to support all mothers and others to reach their personal infant feeding goals.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Hoyt-Austin practices general pediatrics and breastfeeding medicine and strives to provide patient-centered care from prenatal pediatric visits through adolescence. Her clinical practice is primarily based at the Sacramento County Health Center. She also cares for newborns in the mother-baby unity at UC Davis Medical Center and provides urgent care and circumcision services at the Glassrock Pediatric Clinic.

Research/Academic Interests

Dr. Hoyt-Austin’s research and academic interests are in breastfeeding and human milk science. She has special interest in supporting breastfeeding persons by studying how to best support breastfeeding people after birth hospitalization discharge and how to improve medical knowledge for all providers about breastfeeding.
