Are you looking for family-centred care that optimally protects your baby or your toddler’s rapidly developing brain and gut? That supports your capacity to enjoy your child?
We are Brisbane’s first privately run multi-disciplinary specialist clinic for baby and toddler problems. We offer you the help you need to find your own way through challenges that emerge in early life.
Our specialist Breastfeeding Support Service includes home-visiting lactation consultants available on both the north and the south side. Our lactation consultants bring you the very latest in evidence-based, holistic breastfeeding support. We also specialise in oral connective tissue assessment, and regularly offer second opinions concerning the need for oral surgery. Our specialist Infant Sleep Clinic includes home-visits on both the north and south side, and after an initial consultation you can access ongoing group follow-up with no out-of-pocket expenses.
What makes us different?
Our health professionals are leaders in their field. We run conferences and workshops to educate other health professionals in the latest, evidence-based approaches to infant behavioural challenges, including in the management of breastfeeding problems and problems of feeds, sleep, infant crying, and parental mood. Our Breastfeeding Support Service collaborates with the Human Lactation Research Group at the University of Western Australia. Our Infant Sleep Clinic collaborates with Durham University Sleep Laboratory in the UK.
Have you noticed how much conflicting advice you receive, even from health professionals in the one organisation? Our work is ahead of the game – we believe that in ten years’ time, everyone will be using programs like ours. Our research publications have an international profile. Our health professionals all work from the same evidence-base, tailoring the support we offer to suit your family’s unique needs.
Our beautifully refurbished clinic has a friendly, personal atmosphere that will help you feel at home. And parking is easy and free – unlike in the over-crowded hospital precincts!
