Well-baby Visits

Well-baby Visits

Whether you’ve already had your baby or are expecting them soon, it’s never too early to take an interest in their health. In fact, early well-baby visits are critical to a child’s health and proper development. Skipping appointments or neglecting those early doctor’s visits entirely can put your child behind. Here at Compassion Medical Wellness Centre, we strive to provide for the health of each and every one of our patients, no matter their age. From children to adults to adolescent health, and even the wellbeing of newborns, we’re here to support you at every stage of your life.

What Are Well-baby Visits?

Well-baby visits feature specific appointment protocols suited to evaluating the health of babies. These are meant to ensure they are meeting their expected developmental milestones and how their health compares to other children of their age. Typically, these visits include recommendations on what you can do to ensure your baby continues to develop in a healthy manner. Scheduling these visits early is an important part of giving your child a good head start.

What Do These Visits Involve?

Standard well-baby visits begin with our medical staff taking your baby’s measurements. These include their length, head circumference, and weight. Afterward, we will discuss the information you have provided us about your babies, such as their eating and sleeping habits. Moreover, we will discuss your baby’s growth rate and evaluate their physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development.

Pre and Post-natal Care From Compassion Medical Wellness

Along with offering well-baby visits, we also provide pre and post-natal support for women. It may be a good idea to schedule these appointments along with the others to help us get a better understanding of your health too. Much of a baby’s health depends on their family, and here at Compassion Medical Wellness Centre, we want to ensure that we do all we can to provide your family with the proper support.
