Naturopathic well-baby and well-child check-ups to monitor your child's physical and developmental health.  Address your questions and concerns pro-actively.

 

Well-Child Checks

 

Health in infancy and childhood can play a large role in future health.  With this in mind, I provide well-baby and well-child check-ups to monitor the physical and developmental health of your child.  These visits allow me to have time to get to know your family and address your questions and concerns pro-actively.  A large portion of these visits is intended to cover specific educational topics including feeding, sleep, fever management, immune support, environmental toxicity, mental health, allergy and asthma prevention, and other health concerns which may arise.

The schedule varies from family-to-family, but a typical schedule for educational topics looks like:
