Are you having challenges breastfeeding, expressing, or simply getting your baby to feed well? At Baby Steps, we can help.
Your appointment with one of our Specialist GP's will ensure you leave feeling supported and reassured as a new parent. Our Child Health Nurse will take measurements, discuss sleeping and feeding concerns followed by seeing the Doctor for further discussions on you and your baby's health and how you and your partner are coping as new parents.
We can perform the Six Week Check for Mum and baby. A thorough assessment of your baby's development, heart, hips and eyes. We can help with Mums recovery after birth, discuss contraceptive options and how you are coping with the adjustment having a new baby at home.
We also carry out Government Scheduled Vaccinations, as well as private vaccinations - such as Meningococcal ACWY and B strain. We have these medications in stock, so there is no need for a prescription. All vaccination appointments are billed directly to Medicare - so there is no charge to you.
We understand that it is important for parents to feel supported and guided through the adjustment of becoming a new mother or father. Our mission is to empower parents with positive reinforcement, practical advice and inspire confidence in parents' ability to parent.
Dr Levitt is also a procedural GP who can perform Frenectomy's (tongue-tie release) on newborns. Tongue-tie can be hard to diagnose in newborns and it is important to consult with an experienced doctor for the best outcome for you and your baby. If you are having trouble breastfeeding it is recommended you consult with a Lactation Consultant for advise and assistance.
