Congratulations on the birth of your baby! This is a fantastic time for you to enjoy your baby. The aim of this site is to offer advice on your baby's wellbeing and common health issues that some parents worry about. I also offer you the opportunity to enhance your understanding of your babies health with a comprehensive assessment of your baby by a newborn care specialist.
Approximately 725, 000 babies are born in the United Kingdom per year. Each baby has a routine newborn check by a junior doctor or midwife. The general practitioner does a further check at 6-8 weeks of age. Within that time there is no easy access to a newborn care specialist.
I trained as a Paediatric doctor from 1993 and have specialised in newborn babies since 1997. In my current job I look after newborn babies who might be extremely sick or have common problems on the maternity wards. I love my job – I have the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a baby. I get the right balance of challenge, pleasure and fulfilment. In my family I'm lucky to have my wife, a daughter and a son.
