Healthy Child Programme Services 0-5

Offered to everyone in the first 5 years

Antenatal

Once your midwife has told us that you are expecting your baby, a Health Visitor will arrange to visit you (mums and dads-to-be) at home. It is helpful if any family members who are going to be supporting you after the birth of your baby are present at this visit.

 

The Health Visitor will ask you about your feelings about the pregnancy, your health, and your unborn baby’s health and development. This visit will enable us to get to know you and your family, and it is also a chance for you to ask any questions you may have or to discuss any worries and concerns.

Pathway to Parenting (P2P)

Pathway to Parenting (P2P) is a programme for parents to be. It helps you think about the development of your unborn baby and the first few weeks after birth. It includes how things may change when you become a parent and some of the practical skills you might need to care for your baby. There are lots of ideas and activities to support families.

From the 1st October 2019, the course will be delivered either online, in a group setting or one to one at home. Your health professional will advise on which route is best for your family.

New Birth Visit

Around two weeks after your baby has been born, a Health Visitor will arrange to visit you all at home to find out how you are feeling and to discuss the health and wellbeing of your new baby and your family.

The Health Visitor can support you with advice and information about caring for your new baby, advice on feeding and safe sleeping, crying, immunisations, and any other health issues relating to your family.

There is lots of information on this site about your baby’s health and development, including what to expect at different ages and stages, what you can do at home to help your baby to be well, and when to seek help if you are worried about anything.

If you need further information about your wellbeing as a parent, or your baby’s health and development, just use the search button on the homepage to quickly find what you are looking for. You can also contact us by calling Just One Number on 0300 300 0123 or texting Parentline on 07520631590.

6-8 Week Review

Babies are all individual, and grow and develop at their own pace. There is lots of information on Just One Norfolk which will help you to understand how your baby is progressing, and what to expect.

When your baby is between 6 and 8 weeks old, a member of our team will contact you to discuss your baby’s health, development, feeding, and sleeping patterns, or anything else that you may have questions about. They can also talk to you about your family's health and wellbeing.

Getting used to being a parent is exciting, but can also be tiring and stressful as family relationships change. You may find it helpful to chat with other new parents to share your experiences of getting used to being a parent.

If you would like to chat to other families, you can visit our Talk to Families Near Me page: *Click Here*.

1 Year Review

When your child is around 1 year old, a member of our team will send you a questionnaire to complete about your child’s development. This is not a test! The questionnaire can help you to think about the stage your child is at and what you can do to help their development.

Remember that all children develop at their own pace, and that questionnaires are just one way of helping you to understand how your child is progressing. To find out more information about what to expect at different stages of your child’s development *Click Here*.

If you have any concerns about your child’s progress, or if your child has any specific health or development needs, a member of our team can offer further assessment and advice. For more information: *Click Here*.

2.5 Year Shared Review

When your child is around 2 and a half years old, a member of our team will send you a questionnaire to complete at home. This will help you to think about the stage your child is at and what you can do to help their development.

If your child attends any Early Years setting (including nursery, preschool, or childminder) they may be offered a shared review, which brings together the information from you, your Early Years setting and our team. This will help us to have a good understanding of your child’s health and development and consider any support that may be helpful.

If you have any concerns about your child’s progress, or if your child has any specific health or development needs, a member of our team can offer further assessment and advice. For more information *Click Here*.

School Readiness Review

When you take your child to the doctor’s surgery for their preschool immunisations, some surgeries also offer a school readiness review. The practice nurse will ask you how you think your child is progressing and whether you have any concerns about their health or development.

The practice nurse may ask you if they can refer your child to our service for more information or support if this is needed.

If you have any concerns and questions about your child's health or development when they reach this age, you can also contact us by calling Just One Number on 0300 300 0123 or texting Parentline on 07520631590.
