Conveniently located

Advertorial

Swakopmunder Baby and Wellness Clinic opened its doors on 1 June 2019.

The clinic is located in Sam Nujoma Avenue, a block away from its associate company, Swakopmunder Apotheke.

The clinic is an “in house” extension of the pharmacy, and attends to the needs of the public and is also a wellness based practice.

Here registered nurse Sr. Gesina Spangenberg, attends to and advises on health issues related to blood pressure, glucose testing, cholesterol testing, urine testing, wound care and diabetes. She also attends to mothers and babies, and provides breastfeeding advice.

The clinic operates from 09:00 to 17:00 on weekdays and from 09:00 to 13:00 on Saturdays.

The facility offers a free service to all moms on Tuesday mornings from 10:00. This service is free as a return favour and a thank you for all the help and support that Spangenberg herself, with more than 30 years’ experience, received as a young mother.

Mothers are welcome to expand their knowledge with advice on breastfeeding and support, weights and the growth of babies, feeding, starting solids and milestones, etc. Feel free to pop in - no appointment is necessary to make use of this service.

Diabetes sufferers are also welcome to make an appointment for support and education. A well-known endocrinologist once said: “The diabetic that knows the most, lives the longest”.

It is important for diabetics to understand and control the levels of their blood sugar and thus control the illness. Take note that no scripts will be issued in this regard; your general practitioner remains responsible for this.

Wound care is also an essential part of the service offered at the clinic. The sister, adequately trained in wound care management, will attend to the needs of patients especially during the coming December holidays when “little” accidents are bound to happen.

A “pit stop” or “changing station on the go” is an open invite for all moms to change baby’s nappy or settle the little one before continuing their shopping trip.

As for the holiday season, parents are advised to be extra vigilant with small children and babies in the blazing sun, to be extra cautious in the traffic and to attend to symptoms of fever, nausea and diarrhoea immediately.

Look out for the panda logo and pop in to have a look at the baby goodies that are in stock. There is a wide range of products that caters to the needs of moms and their babies.

Swakopmunder Clinic wishes everyone a joyful and special season. Feel free to visit us at the clinic during your well-deserved December holidays!
