Eight week baby check
You will be invited to bring your baby for a thorough physical examination. The baby check is done by the GP, either Dr Majid or Dr Smith.
Your baby's thorough physical examination is done including checking the eyes, heart and hips. They will also have their weight and head circumference measured. For boys, the scrotum will also be examined to determine position of testicles.
Please bring the Red Book with you.
The GP will discuss the eight week baby vaccination schedule and will also administer them after obtaining parental consent from you.
Please see the section child immunisation
The child immunisations are offered at 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 16 weeks, 12 months and before your child starts school.
The GP will also ask you how you've been feeling emotionally and physically since the birth of your baby.
