Baby Physiotherapy Services in Seaford, VIC

Our baby Paediatric Physiotherapy Team have extensive experience and are specialists in baby development; including milestones, sensory systems, movement and play skills. We understand how babies learn, move and play.
Paediatric Physiotherapists are the first health provider your Paediatrician, GP or Maternal Child Health Nurse will refer you to if they have any concerns about your child’s physical development.

At every age, and at every stage, we know what’s normal, what’s expected, and what’s next in your baby’s development. Our team are extensively qualified to assess, diagnose/ identify and provide intervention for any developmental difficulties your baby may be experiencing.

  • We analyze and diagnose any physical changes which could be affecting how your baby moves, and ultimately reaches their motor milestones.
  • We emphasize a hands-on approach and will guide you to help your baby progress their motor development and play skills.
  • We strive to minimise incorrect patterns of movement e.g. a particular head preference or janky crawl, which can cause secondary issues which affects how your baby moves.
  • We will teach you how to play and have fun with your baby to help them shine!

​We can help your baby from as early as your arrival home from hospital (including our beautiful premature babies) so if you have any concerns with your baby’s development, please reach out.
