6 week check for mum and bub

Your 6 week check is your chance to check in and check up

At Baby Steps, we provide support and care for both mum and bubs, offering postnatal checks and newborn checks completed by our experienced, specialist GP’s here in Perth. Your 6-week check up, whether it be for your baby, for you, or for both, is the perfect opportunity to discuss a range of concerns, issues, or topics. Afterall, the first 6 weeks are generally the hardest, so it’s the best time to talk and address anything that may be on your mind.

Your 6 week check should do more than just check a box. That’s why we’ve curated a team of medical and allied health professionals that will care for ALL of you.
