Well Child Visits

A naturopathic doctor (ND) has a lot to offer a child who is feeling unwell. But, a visit to your ND doesn’t need to be limited to times when your child is sick.

Dr. Rachel VandenBerg, ND at Healing Path offers regular well-child visits to help your healthy child stay on track. Through well child visits she can monitor growth and developmental accomplishments. She also works proactively to maximize your child’s digestion and immune health, and prevent future concerns such as allergies, asthma and skin concerns. Well-child visits are also an excellent time for you to ask questions and are a wonderful way for you and your child to build a healthy relationship with your ND.

A well-child visit might include:

  • A thorough physical exam
  • Measurement of height, weight and developmental milestones
  • Breastfeeding support
  • Nutritional guidance and diet review
  • Support for concerns around digestion, teething, or sleep
  • Education and natural home remedies to treat fevers and childhood illnesses
  • Testing for food sensitivities and/or environmental allergens (available for children over 2 yrs old)
  • Time to answer your questions or discuss any concerns

Well-child visits can be scheduled any time. Our recommended schedule includes visits at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months, and then 2-4 times per year.
