Fever is defined as a temperature of 37.5c (99.5F) and above, and can be caused by a number of different things.  When your child has a fever, it can be an anxious and worrying time, however it is very common and, in many cases, clears up itself without any specific treatment.

We love this new initiative from Intercare Health Center! A new ‘Wellbaby’ clinic starts this Thursday 13th October and runs every week.

To celebrate the launch this month, every session in October (for the next three Thursdays – 13th, 20th and 27th of October) will be absolutely FREE for anyone who attends for the first time. This will include a baby/young child (up to 4 years old) having their height/length measured, as well as their weight, and all of this will be plotted on a WHO Growth Chart. In addition to this, for all three of these sessions, their very experienced and senior midwife Vearle will be on hand to answer any questions and have a chat, also FREE of charge. The doctors, as well as members of the therapy team, will be around too, in case there are any further questions or assessments required.

With Jade Lucas Read, Qualified Womens Health Physiotherapist

Do you ever think how awesome it is how much your body has changed after pregnancy and childbirth?!

As a Women’s & Pelvic Health specialist Physiotherapist I have come across many issues that arise due to childbirth and how tough women can be on themselves to put their bodies back together after birth.

Realistically, it takes at least a year before most new mums start to feel like they are a fraction of their former physical self. Unfortunatly, post partum & pelvic rehabilitation care often go neglected. It is so important for all mothers (regardless of how many childbirths they have had) to be well educated on what to expect and more importantly what is safe to do post partum.
