Group Virtual Visits at CMG

Please see below the schedule for upcoming Virtual Group Visit offerings. All sessions will take place on Zoom. We expect most sessions to have between 4 and 15 participants. The sessions are meant to be participatory, but if you prefer to keep your camera off and your microphone muted, you are welcome to do so. Questions can be posed directly by voice, or indirectly through the chat function. Sessions will be billable to insurance as would a normal visit with your provider.

If there is a session you would like to join, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the office at 301-907-3960. Please include the name and date of birth of the patient, the session you would like to join, the provider who is leading it, the day and the time. We look forward to seeing you online!

New Parent Group -- Zoom version! Dr. Ana Markovic & Lactation/Feeding Consultant Holly McClain, RN, Mondays 10:30-11:30. See detailed schedule below.

Formerly "Mommy and Me," and now open to both Dads and Moms.

Virtual parent support group session starting at CMG! This group is ideal for parents of 2 week to 4 month old babies. Weekly sessions will be led by Pediatrician Ana Markovic and Lactation/Feeding consultant Holly McClain. Each week we will focus on a different topic, though we will also cover any particular topics of interest to the group that day. Topics include breastfeeding and feeding support, discussion about sleep strategies, nutrition, finding balance, infant development, and most of all getting to know other new parents and sharing experiences. Our traditional ways of connecting with each other have been turned upside down and this will hopefully be a welcome source of information as well as an opportunity to connect with others who may be in a similar situation.

Monday 4/26, 10:30-11:30am - focus on Sleeping

Monday, 5/3, 10:30-11:30am - special session on Infant Massage

Monday, 5/10, 10:30-11:30am - focus on Infant Development (0-12 months)

Summer 2021: Travel and Camp Planning – Dr. Dan Finkelstein, Wednesday 2-2:45

Many people are contemplating a more active summer this year, though younger children will not yet be vaccinated. This session will address decision making with regard to typical summer activities in the context of this stage of the pandemic. Air travel, joint vacations, day camps and sleep away camps will be discussed. Questions and discussion welcome.

What Can We Do Together at This Point? Dr. Dan Finkelstein, Thursday 2-2:45

Given the state of vaccination, we are all trying to figure out who can do things with who, and how. This session will provide an opportunity to discuss planning for joint activities for each permutation – groups that are all vaccinated, mixed groups of vaccinated and unvaccinated, and groups where none are yet vaccinated. Questions and consideration of particular scenarios welcome.
