Breastfeeding counseling and support on all aspects of feeding and baby’s diet

We are proud to have qualified lactation specialists at this clinic. Breastfeeding is a personal decision. Experience has taught us that getting breastfeeding off to a good start is often not as simple as it seems. Research has proven that early support is vital for a satisfactory and good breastfeeding experience. Do not dwell on problems. Rather seek professional help early.

We do have facilities to enable mothers to feed in private.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding medication taken whilst breastfeeding.

Whatever feeding decision, we offer professional support and counseling. Weaning and introduction of solids are also discussed, as well as milestone development.

During a consultation, we take time to weigh and assess baby’s needs and progress. Any problems relating to feeds can be directly assessed and hands on solutions can be given.

If help is needed to make a well informed decision, we will contact your Paediatrician or Gynaecologist directly and immediately, or do the necessary referral.

Vaccines

Vaccinations are recognized as one of the most effective preventative health care measures and we encourage and educate parents to make a well-informed decision regarding their own and baby’s health.
 
We offer private and state supplied vaccines for your baby or child. We administer vaccines according to the schedule determined by the Department of Health or as prescribed by the baby’s pediatrician.
 
We also offer catch up vaccinations (should the need arise) e.g. immigrants and travellers.Should you wish, we send regular vaccination follow up reminders via SMS.
Mothers are free to feed their babies at the clinic before and after giving vaccinations.
