Thula Baby Centre is a private well baby clinic run by  Heather Wood and Tasha Perreard, offering antenatal classes, lactation support in hospital and after discharge from hospital, and care of newborn baby, mum and dad.  We weigh and measure the babies, settle them when they fuss, and give new parents the knowledge and skills they need to parent with confidence. Vaccinations are given according to the South African EPI (recommended vaccine schedule) using state vaccines, as well as the private vaccines not currently on the state programme.  Feeding difficulties are prioritised.  Dads are welcome and encouraged to come to clinic visits, and pertinent issues like expressing, back to work, sleeping difficulties, routine and starting solids are covered in consultations.
