Heather Wood has been the clinic sister at Thula since it opened its door 15 years ago . Tasha Perreard , our second clinic sister and lactation consultant, is also mum to three small children. Alexandra Laros is the newest member of the Thula Team and is a qualified nurse and midwife. Shani is our administrator, and she will look after you and make your appointments for you, too, if you don’t find it easier to book them on line.
Thula Baby Centre is a private well baby clinic, offering antenatal preparation classes, lactation support in hospital, as well as after discharge from hospital, and care of the newborn baby, mum and dad. We weigh and measure the babies, and teach our new parents how to care for them, learning skills for settling them when they fuss, and knowlege and skills to parent with confidence. Any feeding difficulties are prioritised. Vaccinations are given according to the South African EPI (recommended vaccine schedule) using the excellent government vaccines, as well as private vaccines not available through the state programme. Dads are welcomed and encouraged to come to clinic visits, and other pertinent issues like expressing, back to work, sleeping trouble, routine and starting solids are covered in consultations.
