Choosing a Suitable Paediatrician for Your Child

With a profound understanding of the unique needs and developmental stages of young patients, paediatricians play a crucial role in promoting their growth, boosting their health, and nurturing their overall well-being.

From routine check-ups and vaccinations to diagnosing and treating illnesses, paediatrics encompasses a comprehensive range of medical services custom-made to address the specific health challenges of your children.

The department is led by our paediatrics expert Dr. Rita Saba who comes with profound knowledge in this domain. In this department, we provide all major paediatric services for newborns, young children, and adolescents.

When should you consult a paediatrician?

At Dr. Helena’s Clinic, we recommend regular visits to one of our paediatricians during the first five years of your child’s life. These visits are important for vaccinations, immunisations, and monitoring your child’s developmental milestones. Whether it’s regarding physical symptoms, behavioural changes or any other aspect of your child’s health, a paediatrician can provide expert guidance and support. Additionally, regular check-ups with a paediatrician are recommended to monitor your child’s growth and development and to address any emerging issues early on. If you’re unsure about whether to consult a paediatrician, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and seek professional advice.

How often should my child see a paediatric specialist for routine check-ups?

The frequency of routine check-ups with a paediatric specialist varies based on your child’s age. Typically, a healthy child aged two or three may only require a routine check-up once a year. However, younger children may need more frequent visits. Infants, for instance, might need check-ups every one or two months until they reach one year old.

What age range does paediatrics cover?

Paediatrics encompasses the period from birth through adolescence.

  • Infancy covers the time from birth to two years old
  • Childhood spans from ages two to 12
  • Adolescence ranges from 12 to 18 years old.

Ensuring Your Child's Well-being: HPV Vaccine Dubai

The HPV vaccine is recommended for people between 9 to 26 years old:

•  Ages 9 to 14: Administer two doses of the HPV vaccine with a minimum interval of six months between doses. If the second dose is missed, it can be administered within a 12-month window. However, if the second dose is given before six months, a third dose is necessary, administered six months after the second dose.

•  Ages 15 to 17: HPV vaccine can be administered in three doses over a 6-month period. People with weak immune systems also get 3 shots, including those aged between 9 –14 years old.

Giving children the HPV vaccine can protect them from serious diseases later in life, like:

•   Cervical cancer in women
•   Vaginal and vulvar cancer in women
•   Genital warts in both men and women
•   Anal cancer in both men and women

When boys get the HPV vaccine, it also helps lower the risk of cervical cancer in women because it reduces the spread of the virus.

No, the HPV vaccine is not only for females. It's recommended for both girls and boys, to protect them from HPV-related cancers and genital warts.

Babies typically start crawling between 7 to 12 months, though individual development varies. Your baby may start crawling earlier or later than this range, as each child progresses at their own pace.

Walking is a major milestone for your baby. Babies typically take their first steps independently between 12 to 15 months, though this milestone can occur anywhere from 9 to 18 months, reflecting each child's individual development. Before this, they may cruise along furniture or walls, usually between 9 to 13 months.

Outdoor play offers children more than just physical activity. It fosters socialization, body awareness, imaginative play, and appreciation for nature while enhancing their motor skills.
