The Oakden Medical Centre offers the Potties & Pillows Clinic on a Wednesday morning, run by Registered Nurse Alexandra Emerson & Dr Michaela Baulderstone.

This clinic is a special bridging service between the patient’s normal GP care & specialist medical care. Patients with further complicating health concerns or with significant co-morbidities will be referred for specialist paediatric care.

Our "potties" service manages & treats daytime & bed wetting, constipation, faecal soiling, UTI's, toilet refusal & general toilet training advice. Michaela & Alex have extensive experience managing toileting difficulties & understand the main goal is to successfully support & treat these children for the long term!

The "pillows" service helps to support parents & their 'trickster' infants to develop & maintain sleep routines & patterns. Both Alex & Michaela have completed the 'Sleep Training' course through the Royal Children's Hospital (Melbourne) & can support families to understand their child’s sleep from a developmental perspective, & how to encourage healthy & age appropriate sleep habits.

A referral from the patient’s usual GP is preferred but not essential.
For all other medical care, patients will be referred back to their usual GP.
The first 5 clinic sessions will incur a $55.00 gap payment, whilst any further visits will be bulk billed.
