In this video, Dr Miriam addresses child immunisation. Its normal and natural to feel anxious about immunisation as after all, no-one likes to see their child in pain. However, the most important thing to remember is that immunisation only takes a moment, whereas the protection it gives your child lasts for years. In this video Dr Miriam Stoppard gives valuable advice to parents whose babies are about to go through the process.
Dr Miriam covers areas such as guilt and anxiety, stopping your child becoming fractious, and how to act in the consulting room. She also talks about how to act once the injections have been carried out and what to look out for.
