As you start parenthood with a newborn baby, it’s normal to have questions and concerns about everything from sleeping and routines to feeding and milestones.
Your child’s well-being is our priority, and our Well Baby Clinic provides you with expert guidance and comprehensive care to support you every step of the way.
With baby health checks at key milestones, our multidisciplinary team of paediatric specialists work together to offer a holistic approach, drawing expertise from several different areas of children’s care.
We are dedicated to supporting you in promoting your child’s health and wellness, encouraging an open dialogue for any queries or concerns you may have regarding your child’s health, development, and overall well-being.
Our Well Baby Clinics are held monthly and take place at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, where you’ll have access to world-leading consultants who provide clinical services to treat common childhood conditions, as well as providing complex care.
In every clinic you will be seen by our team of children’s experts. Together, they will provide a detailed medical review and physical examination, and can diagnose and treat common paediatric problems. They can also refer to other specialties if needed.
Dr Marie White, consultant paediatrician, has experience in neonatal and paediatric conditions. Marie has specialist interests in asthma and allergies, and specialises in treating a range of conditions including reflux, constipation, cow’s milk protein allergy, and urinary tract infections.
Mrs Michaela Smith is a specialist paediatric dietician and lactation consultant. Michaela provides support for infants and families across a number of areas including assessments in breastfeeding, expressing and bottle-feeding, as well as assistance and advice around weaning and growth faltering.
Mr Simon Filson, consultant plastic surgeon, is the clinical lead of paediatric plastic surgery at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

Marie, Michaela and Simon will assess your baby’s health and development and can offer advice and treatments for common childhood conditions through to more complex care needs.
Leaving hospital with your baby can be a daunting experience. Our newborn clinic provides the opportunity for your baby to have a comprehensive review by our paediatric experts and enables you to ask questions and discuss any concerns after being discharged from hospital.
This clinic offers a 1 hour consultation including top to toe physical examination and assessment of feeding, growth and problems such as tongue ties.
Our aim is to ensure your baby is healthy and to identify and address any possible feeding, medical or surgical concerns early, before they can impact adversely on growth or development. This consultation can also simply give you reassurance after a thorough assessment of your baby’s health.
This clinic enables us to monitor the growth and development of your baby with early identification and management of any concerns.
After being discharged from your midwife, life with a small baby can feel overwhelming. Some conditions may not present until the first few months of life and can remain undiagnosed for some time. These include reflux, cow’s milk protein allergy and tongue ties which can adversely impact on feeding and growth.
This appointment provides a full assessment of your baby’s intake and enables us to track their growth and development.
Our holistic review aims to address your concerns and to provide guidance and reassurance about your baby’s health. You will also receive a free webinar on basic life support and choking to give you the confidence to know what to do in an emergency.
Knowing how and when to introduce food into your baby’s diet can be a daunting task and every baby is unique. This clinic aims to guide you through the weaning process and monitors your baby’s growth including thorough examination and assessment of their developmental milestones.
We offer a comprehensive overview of various weaning approaches, ranging from traditional methods to baby-led weaning and hybrid models. Our aim is to develop a weaning strategy that is personalised for you and your baby. We provide guidance on the timing for introducing specific allergens, which are supported by the latest scientific research and evidence.
We want your child to thrive and to support you throughout this rapidly changing first year of your baby’s life. Our 1 year baby check offers a comprehensive assessment of your child’s growth, feeding and developmental milestones.
All children develop at their own pace but knowing what to expect at each stage can give you reassurance and ease any concerns you have. The 1 year baby clinic appointment will allow also us to pick up concerns with hearing which can impact your baby’s speech progression.
