Baby

Tests at birth


Examining the baby from head to toe for any abnormality, dysfunction or pathology.
We also appreciate the presence of a certain number of reflexes:
- the fatping: the doctor, putting his finger in the palm of the baby, must cause a closing of the fingers then a powerful grip.
Moro's reflex: by pulling both lower limbs upwards and letting the head fall gently, a rapid abduction of the upper limbs followed by a scream.
- Added also the verification of the automatic walking, the tone of the spine and the reflex of crossed elongation (one stretches a leg and tickles the foot, the baby will extend his other leg as if he sought to dismiss this inappropriate stimulus).
