Well Child Checks

Babies are checked periodically during their first year of life to ensure that they are developing correctly. The first appointment with us is usually at six weeks. The midwife will check the initial days after child birth for issues after which the plunket nurse will take over the care. Babies are weighed and measured to make sure that they are arriving at the various developmental milestones.

These checks are intended to check the infants physical and emotional growth , address issues like difficulties with breastfeeding or sleep for example, to discuss immunisations and vaccinations and to check whether mum is having enough support and sleep.
