Health Visitors offer advice on child care & development and support to families with babies from 14 days old (after discharge from midwifery care) until children commence school. You can expect a new birth visit within the first 14 days and any other required follow up will be arranged from this. A 1 year review will be carried out between 9-12 months and a 2 year review between 2-2.5 years. Health Visitors can help with managing behaviour, advice on stress and postnatal depression, protecting children and supporting families, and provide information about other services and agencies. See our Opening Times section for Baby Clinics information.
