The Well-Nurtured team is comprised of trained pediatric Occupational Therapists who support your newborn’s growth, development and overall wellness through a family-centered, holistic approach. We specialize in treating and supporting preterm and post term infants (birth to 3 years of age) and their families during and after an unexpected and often traumatic stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. We also provide support services to families and their newborns who are transitioning home after delivery and discharge from the hospital. We offer both online and in-person infant/pediatric services to suit your family’s schedule and infant’s unique needs.
