Elizabeth McBride, MD


Elizabeth McBride, MD, is a neonatologist at UW Health Kids and an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. She specializes in caring for premature babies and newborns with complex health conditions.

Dr. McBride cares for babies during their stay in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and has a special interest in addressing feeding-related problems in newborns.

In addition to caring for infants after birth, Dr. McBride meets with expectant parents during pregnancy when their baby has been diagnosed with a congenital condition that will require treatment. She can help families understand what to expect during and after delivery and the type of care their child will receive in the NICU.

Dr. McBride enjoys partnering with families. In her medical practice, she draws not only on her training and expertise but her personal experience as a mother whose baby was born prematurely.

Outside of her practice, Dr. McBride enjoys spending time outside with her family and dog.

What sparks joy in the NICU's day-to-day care is celebrating the small victories along with the bigger ones, when parents and families walk out of the hospital with their newborn.
