Other areas of focus in the clinic range from sleep and potty training advice, treatment of minor ailments such as colic, teething, constipation, reflux, rashes, allergies as well as upper respiratory infections.
“We understand that each family is different and take a family-centred approach to the care we provide. Our goal is to make the entire process seamless, from shopping for baby essentials, to wellness and this one-stop solution allows us to simplify, integrate and streamline access to these much-needed services,” said Grant.
