Immunisations for babies


Just a caution  -  before and after the immunisations that you give your baby

If you're worried that your baby may become very unwell as a result of his immunisation, you may be tempted to give him infant paracetamol just in case, even if he seems fine. However, it may help the vaccine work better if you don't.

One small study found that giving children paracetamol to prevent a fever coming on seemed to make the vaccine less effective. The children who were given paracetamol just in case produced fewer antibodies in response to the vaccine. If fewer antibodies are produced, it's possible that the vaccine may not work as well

What I Do

I am living my dream while working with mums and babies. I see mums when they are 34 weeks pregnant and then go to their homes once they go into labour. I stay for the full duration of the labour and after the birth I assist them with breast feeding. I do another visit after the birth to see that all is well and to help where I can.  Mums are always welcome to call me in the event that they have any questions, whether before or after the birth. I am passionate about my work as a doula and I care and love all the families with which I work. Once you have been present at a birth you feel part of the family and it’s wonderful to hear news of the new baby’s life as he or she grows.
