Newborn infant development

Caring for a newborn is one of the greatest challenges a parent or caregiver faces. In helping this process we place emphasis on

  • Newborn babies development screening and follow up. This includes screening and evaluation as well as tracking of the progress of newborn babies who are at an increased risk of experiencing developmental problems; Follow-up evaluations to identify problems in physical growth, sensory systems or learning/development.
  • Counseling parents on nutrition, safety, and other important topics. Particularly important are problems related to breastfeeding, nutrition, solid nutrition

Administering immunizations against common illnesses. Immunizations include compulsory and voluntary vaccinations.

Pediatric visit and examination

With a view to specific age- relates communications need, we are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of quality care... personal, considerate, sensitive, and knowledgeable. The pediatric visit includes

First, a detailed overview of the medical history (pregnancy, neonatal events, family illness, previous diseases)

Then will discuss the daily routine, dietary habits and other issues, such as health concerns, or, perhaps child education-related matters. These could be related to the birth of a new baby in the family, the child's contact with the community.

This is followed by a detailed physical examination that includes nutritional assessment (weight and height measurement, percentile calculation), examination of the hair, teeth and skin as well as genital examination.

We strive to do only the absolutely necessary, but sufficient investigations, particularly with regard to the discomfort and possibly painful interventions (e.g. blood tests).
