Health visitors are qualified nurses with a Public Health qualification who specialise in child and family health and wellbeing by delivering The Healthy Child Programme.
Health Visitors can be contacted by telephone during office hours on 01962 831088, and are available at Child Health Clinics.
Health Visitors work in partnership with you in the community to promote healthy lifestyle choices and health and well-being to all children from late pregnancy until school entry.
Health visitors offer every family five key contacts to offer support with transition to parenthood and maternal mental health, breastfeeding, healthy eating, managing minor ailments, child development, and school readiness.
Further specific expert support and advice can also be offered with a range of subjects such as parenting, sleep, behaviour, healthy eating, toileting, introducing solid foods.
The first appointment with your Health visitor will be around your 28th week of pregnancy and then between 10 and 14 days after your baby is born. A plan for further support will be agreed at these visits in line with The Healthy Child Programme depending on you and your family’s needs.
Health Visitors work in partnership with Children’s Centres who offer activities and courses for the under 5s. Details can be found on the Action for Children website.
