The Welwitschia Dear Baby Club

Dear Baby” is our expression of a commitment to being your partner in the healthy delivery of your baby on your own terms. By joining the Dear Baby Club, you make it our responsibility to assign to you a dedicated Midwife who can answer any questions or concerns you may have during the pregnancy. We also can then support you with keeping attention on the “admin” aspects of this period, enabling you to focus on the dozens of tasks on your to-do list. Let us take on your baby's welfare in-utero, and you do what you must: look after yourself to the best of your ability. The Dear Baby Programme is made up of the following elements:

2   Dedicated Midwife

Your doctor must always be consulted about yours and your Baby's specific needs. However, many day-to-day questions regarding such things as birth-plans, occurrences that give you concern, as well as hospital facilities and services can be referred to your Dedicated Midwife.

3   Your Birth Plan

At any point in your later stages of pregnancy, a time may come to make a decision that you might not feel up to making on the spur of the moment, perhaps simply because it has not come up previously. A birth plan contains both the general spirit of your birthing wishes, as well as more specific items relating to your preferences. Making the plan beforehand allows us to look after your baby and yourself according to your values and your choices.

4   Early Childhood Development

ECD is the holistic science that takes the view that your baby learns and develops both physically and psychologically from the time of pregnancy. These learnings, or developments shape your baby's personality and physicality with permanent impacts. Thus nutrition, stimulation and health care need to combine from early on in pregnancy, and run right through childhood. In conjunction with the Rotary Club of Walvis Bay, we are proud to present you with informative materials, as well as personalized attention with regard to Early Childhood Development.
