Help for New Parents

At FNHC we understand the difficulties facing parents when looking after newly born babies and young children. In the 21st Century, parents are inundated with information about what’s best for their children and our Health Visitors and Community Nursery Nurses are here to provide the correct support and advice, helping parents to feel more confident in their parenting skills and to provide the best opportunities for their children.

We provide advice on healthy choices, e.g. breastfeeding, weaning, healthy eating and protection against disease and infection. We work closely with parents to help promote strong family bonds and offer information to families with specific difficulties such as postnatal depression.

Our Health Visitors are qualified nurses with specialist training in public health for children, young people and families. We are here to help you and your family during pregnancy, up to your child’s first day at school, aged five.

For more information please call 443600. 

Please note that these clinics are for well babies and if your child is unwell you need to make an appointment to see your own GP. If your think your child is infectious or has a rash we would prefer that you did not bring your child to clinic as there are very young babies present.

The clinics do not run on Bank/Public Holidays

Any urgent or important messages are posted on Facebook 

Contact our Health Visitors if you need any help with breastfeeding or infant health questions. Call us on 443600
