Nambour Clinic runs a Child Health and Immunisation Clinic on Tuesday mornings at Palmwoods, Wednesday mornings at Nambour, Thursday mornings at Woombye by appointment only.
Anita provides support to mothers of newborns through to prep aged children. We give advice on common concerns like breastfeeding, introducing solids, postnatal depression, sleep and settling as well as assessing children by weighing, measuring and checking development. The clinic also carries out many of the routine childhood vaccinations. Referrals to other agencies are also undertaken should they be required.
The Clinic is undertaken by registered nurse Anita who has endorsements as a Midwife, Immunisation Provider, Isolated Practice Nurse and also hold a Graduate Certificate in Child and Family Health.
