New Baby Review

A health visitor will visit you and your family at home when your baby is 10-14 days old.

This first visit gives you the chance to discuss any issues about the health and well-being of yourself, your new baby and the rest of the family. This is a chance to ask for any advice or information and to discuss any worries you may have.

Some of the things that you may want to discuss could be:

  • Contacting the health visitor team in the future
  • Child health clinic
  • Feeding
  • Sleeping and crying
  • Advice on caring for your baby at night
  • Immunisations
  • Family health (yourself, your partner, your baby’s brothers or sisters)
  • Registering your baby’s birth
  • Home and car safety
