Are you a parent of young children?
Are you looking for good, practical, professional advice and information about you little ones?
Then this podcast is for you!
Frank Kelleher is a Paediatric Osteopath with over 30 years’ experience in healthcare. He runs a very busy paediatric clinic in Cork and wanted a way to give more parents information about the issues he treats every day.
This Podcast is all about providing information for parents on the common issues that can affect their baby or child and more importantly, where to get help. Our access to healthcare has been negatively impacted in the last few years. Waiting lists are longer than ever for even the most basic services for children.
Our aim is to provide parents with good, practical, professional information to help them navigate their little one’s health needs more effectively. Issues like digestive upset in a newborn baby, the premature baby, what to do if you feel your child need some support at school for example.
Frank will give you the benefit of his may years working with babies and children and he will also invite guests to discuss some of the issues he treats and other conditions that commonly affect babies and children.
