Dr Tamara Bugembe
Hi and welcome to my site. I am a consultant paediatrician with more than 15 years experience looking after children and their families.
I love sharing practical answers to questions on child health and parenting. I have written for several websites, newspapers, magazines and participate in expert panels at parenting events such as The Baby Show London.
My main area of expertise is the child's developing brain and associated disorders, but I am passionate about sharing information about all areas of child health.

I am a childrens' doctor who enjoys packaging evidence-based advice into practical strategies parents can use to enhance their child's health and development.
In 2014 I started a niche newborn childcare agency called Helper Bees and focused on promoting advice around newborn care. I have now closed the business but continue to support families through my clinical practice.
