Our Services

We offer a wide range of services in a child friendly enviroment.

ASTHMA

Asthma is a reversible constriction of the small muscles in the bronchioles. This happens due to pollen inhalation, cold wind, viruses, allergy to dogs and cats and moulds.

Attendance at Childbirth

When a baby is born there should be a paediatrician to see the little new human being, just to check that everything is fine. You can choose your paediatrician before birth and let the gynaecologists’ secretary book the paediatrician for the birth.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a combination of hyperactivity, inattention, impulsivity and distractibility. Not all four groups have to be present. A child may not be hyperactive, but may be day dreaming more at school.

Child Developmental Assessments

Check-ups are important for your child, just to see that everything is on track. Check-ups are done at six weeks, five months, ten months, 1 year and then every six months until they go to school (grade 1).

Diabetes in Children

Diabetes is a life threatening disease. It has a slow onset that can be missed. Mothers notice that the child is drinking excessively and is going to the toilet more often than usual.

Newborn Feeding Problems

The first few weeks with a newborn are daunting. There is so much that has changed in the mother’s life. Some mother’s feel overwhelmed and become sad. If the sadness continues after a good night sleep, it may be post-partum depression.
