Baby drop-in clinics now running at The Maris Practice


The Maris Practice has started a drop-in clinic on Monday’s for mothers and babies. The clinic will work on a first come - first served basis. We have breast feeding counsellors, osteopaths, and other specialists available for chats and consultations. This clinic is aimed at helping mum’s who had a difficult birth or who are now suffering from unexplained aches and pains, and babies who aren’t settling.

The practitioners at The Maris Practice often help with:

  • Recovery for both mum and baby from difficult births, especially where forceps or ventouse assistance was needed, umbilical cord issues like being wrapped around baby’s neck during labour,
  • Baby’s who appear uncomfortable or stressed for no apparent reason and perhaps seems worse when lying down / trying sleep,
  • Baby’s suffering from colic,
  • Breast-feeding problems, including identification and treatment of tongue-tie,
  • Concerns about baby’s head shape not recovering following birth.

The clinic will be an opportunity to ask questions of experts, find out more about complementary therapies and get support during the often lonely difficult early months when the lack of sleep can make problems seem insurmountable.

This drop-in clinic for all parents and babies on monday's from 9.30am to 12.30pm. Click here for a map. More details are available here.

We are a 5 - 10 minute walk from either Twickenham or St Margarets train stations. The closest bus stop is Lebanon Court which is a 5 minute walk to the Practice, where buses 33, 490 H22, R68, R70 all stop. If you drive, we have one parking space in a designated bay outside the Practice. If this is taken there are pay and display car parking bays nearby in Strafford Road, Haggard Road or Oak Lane.
