Babies and kids

 

Paediatric Care

Many of our GPs enjoy seeing our youngest patients, and a number of our doctors have undertaken extra training by completing a Diploma of Child Health. We consider it a privilege to watch your infants grow up into toddlers, tweens, teens, adolescents and young adults, and are here to provide you with the best medical care across this complex time of life. Establishing rapport with a regular doctor can be very valuable as young people learn to navigate their own health and wellbeing as they grow. 

Newborn babies, breastfeeding concerns and problems new parents face

Our GPs are experienced in caring for children of all ages from newborns and toddlers to adolescents and beyond. We provide support to new parents with any issues you may have from breastfeeding, introducing solids, sleep issues and more. We routinely perform six week check ups for new babies and post partum mums. It is a privilege to be part of the journey from pregnancy and seeing our youngest patients grow up. 

Our dietitian, Jenny, can assist with elimination diets for young patients and breastfeeding mothers.
