How to Prepare for Your First Visit

What to expect:

Both mom and baby will be assessed at all appointments. Approximately 45 minutes will be spent with the nurse and physician. Waiting times can vary.

What to bring:

For registration, please bring health cards for mom and baby.

Pack spare diapers, wipes, and a blanket for your baby. If using supplements, bring milk too.

For the most beneficial visit, record feedings and number of diaper changes over the last 24 hours. Feel free to use our chart. Please have a complete record of baby’s weights with you.

If available, have the contact information of the family doctor/paediatrician that will be following the baby long term.
