Postnatal Support in Dubai
The baby might not have arrived yet, but it is still a good idea to think about the first time at home with a newborn. Arriving home with a newborn you will find yourself catapulted into a whole new existence of apparently non-stop tasks and routine, that can seem rather overwhelming. With a new baby around, you may need parenting support and postnatal care. Here is a list of where to seek professional help and advice in Dubai. We hope you find something that will suit your needs.
Infinity Baby Clinic
Infinity Baby Clinic has a team of highly qualified and experienced western-educated midwives, pediatric nurses and lactation consultants that are also mothers themselves. This clinic runs post-birth home visits; similar to the UK health visitor system. They offer everything from medical checks to advice on how to bath your baby.
Cecile de Scally
Midwife Cecile offers antenatal and postnatal support. She focuses a lot on breastfeeding advice and has a focus on sleep and routines for babies and their families. Cecile says: “My passion is to ensure good feeding habits and good sleep routines for babies and their parents, while providing a sound fact-based antenatal education service to empower mothers during their births”.
