There is probably nothing more important to you than your children.  Navigating the needs and health of your kids can be confusing and overwhelming. That’s where Spring comes in!

From day one, we can help make this exciting time a much easier one.

From tracking your child’s growth and development in Well Child Exams, to assistance with breastfeeding and other types of feeding, immunization counseling, solid food introduction, naturopathic support when your child is sick, and so much more, we can help make your job as a parent less stressful.

From infancy to childhood, you are laying down a foundation for lifelong health.  At this time in a child’s life, it is critical to establish:

  • Healthy eating habits

  • Proper hydration
  • An ability to manage stress
  • A strong immune system
  • Daily dental care
  • Confidence and a health sense of self
  • Support for acute and chronic illness

The best way to prevent long term health problems is to stop them before they begin by ensuring healthy childhood development.
