6-8 week contact

Service overview

When your baby is 6-8 weeks old, a health visitor or community nursery nurse will meet you to review your baby’s development and progress. They can also offer advice and support on feeding and wellbeing.

It is also an opportunity for you to talk about your own emotional health with a member of the 0-19 team and access any additional support you may need.

The appointment date and time will be given to you at the new birth visit and you will need to bring your redbook to the appointment. It will either be an appointment held at a community clinic or Children's Centre or at home if needed. Appointments can be changed by contacting us at one of the numbers below.

Our Health Visitor Advice Lines provide support for you and your family on all aspects of child health, development and parenting. This includes feeding, an unsettled baby, management of minor illnesses, child development and behaviour, immunisations and concerns regarding your own emotional wellbeing.
