Mother Baby Clinic is a specialised service for parents and young children providing expertise in breastfeeding issues, maternal health, sleep and settling problems and infant issues such as tongue tie, colic, reflux, poor weight gain, irritability or allergy. Toddlers and pre-schoolers with sleep issues are also welcome.
At your initial consult you and your baby will be assessed by a doctor with expertise in Breastfeeding Medicine, child health and postnatal health care, and a midwife lactation and sleep consultant. If necessary a breastfeed will be observed. Evidence based advice and a detailed treatment plan individualised to the needs of you and your family will be developed.
Mother Baby Clinic appointments are much longer than standard general practice appointments so it is essential that you ask for a Mother Baby Clinic appointment when booking. Be prepared to be at the practice for up to 90 minutes.
If you are a new patient please arrive 15 minutes earlier than your appointment time to allow for paperwork.
The Mother Baby Clinic runs on Wednesdays with Dr Moira McCaul or Dr Julia Chan and Ms Trenna Moore.
