Newborns and Infants

Dr Wagh has considerable experience treating both preterm (< 37 weeks) and full-term babies, as well as infant children. Common issues include gastroesophageal reflux, heart murmur, antenatal renal pelvis dilatation and developmental delays.

Babies born after 37 weeks are classified as full-term babies, whereas those born before 37 weeks are called preterm infants. Preterm babies may need ongoing follow-up with a Paediatrician to monitor growth and development.

In most cases, routine checks with your GP are usually sufficient for full-term babies. Your GP may refer your child to a Paediatrician for further evaluation if there are any concerns during these regular baby checks.

These are some of the newborn and infant conditions we manage.
