When your health visitor comes to visit you at this time you might still be seeing your midwife.
What happens at this visit?
At this visit we’ll make sure that you and your partner are doing OK, check how you’re all settling in at home and talk about any needs or worries you may have.
We may weigh your baby and measure their head. We will talk about things like your child’s red book, immunisations and how feeding your baby is going. We’ll also talk about how you are bonding with your baby and responding to their needs.
We will chat about how you are feeling and your mental wellbeing as this is a big time of change for you all.
