Healing Kids offers a range of services that will give you the reassurance you need to have that your precious little ones are in safe hands. In addition, Dr. Naicker is readily available to attend to emergency calls outside of working hours.
Attendance at Caesarean Section births ensures comprehensive newborn assessment and management of any immediate medical concerns. The newborn is assessed daily until discharged. It is ideally from this point onward that a relationship of trust and faith is formed between parent and Paediatrician.
TREATMENT OF CHILDREN & ADOLESCENTS
Every child’s journey at Healing Kids is built on a relationship of trust and genuine care. A shared philosophy of care and communication is established, that spans well into the child’s early teen years.
Healing Kids firmly believes:
- In vaccine efficacy to prevent serious illness and to save lives.
- In the safety of our vaccines.
- That all children and young adults should receive all recommended vaccines as per the EPI Schedule.
- Based on all current studies, that vaccines do not cause Autism or other developmental disabilities.
- That immunising children and young adults may be the single most important health promoting intervention we perform as health care professionals and that you can perform as parents/caregivers.
At Healing Kids vaccinations will be administered at a fee provided that the vaccines are purchased prior to the visit.
Nutrition plays an important role in a healthy childhood and can set the foundation for wellness in adulthood. A balanced and nutritious diet helps facilitate growth among children during a time in which they are developing at a rapid rate. Education is an essential part of teaching parents and children about the importance of nutrition.
Dr. Roshni Naicker is passionate about nutritional health – hence at the 4 month check, a formal discussion on the introduction of solids is provided; to also allay any anxiety allergy risks.
“The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has developed a set of comprehensive health guidelines for optimal childcare, known as the Well Child periodicity schedule: a schedule of screenings and assessments recommended at each visit, from infancy through adolescence.
Importantly, this schedule begins at a child’s very first visit, within a few days of being born, and continues until a child reaches adolescence.
The AAP advises that the Well Child principle plays a preventative role by providing your child with necessary immunisations and information on common concerns. The periodicity schedule also helps your doctor track your child’s growth and development, and ensures you have a family of experts to lean on in the event your child falls ill.
THE AAP recommends paediatric checkups at:
- 3-5 days after birth
- 1, 2, 5, 6, 9 months
- 12, 15, 18, 24 months
- 30 and 36 months
- Thereafter, annual checkups are recommended
