4 weeks checkup


When your child is 4 weeks old, you will be offered a group consultation at the health centre. This consultation will consist of a discussion with other parents with babies of the same age, a public health nurse and possibly a physiotherapist. You will be asked whether there are any topics you wish to discuss.

If you do not wish to participate in group consultations, you can request an individual consultation instead.

Who you will meet

  • public health nurse
  • physiotherapist

The child's weight and head circumference will be measured when necessary.
