Neonatal hearing screening
For the development of the child is a healthy hearing very important . Between the fourth and seventh day, the nurse or caretaker come to your home to take the screening. This is done with the OAE machine that  measures the Otto Acoustic Emissions. These are very subtle sounds that the ear produces. They can be measured by closing the ear with a cap in which a speaker and a microphone mounted.


Infants care


The objective of this sector is prevention, taking into account the growth and development of healthy children between 0-5 years. 
For children up to 18 months, we offer consultations. During such a consultation the child is being examined by a doctor or a nurse. The baby is weighed, skull girth and length are measured, vaccinations against childhood diseases are being given, growth and development is monitored and safety information is given. Transfer to a general practitioner. On indication, we also do home visits.
