Healthy Child Programme Services 0-5

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have had to make some changes to the way we work in the community. We want to ensure that the families, children and young people that really need our support can still access help.

From 1st June 2020, we have updated the services that the NHS has agreed are essential for families. 

*Norfolk Essential Services*

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 contact you; the parents. You may have a friend or family member who'll be supporting you after the birth of your baby, you could invite them to be present at this time.

The Health Visitor will ask you about your feelings about the pregnancy, your health, and your unborn baby’s health and development. This contact 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.

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 at the top of the page. You can also contact us by calling Just One Number on 0300 300 0123 or texting Parentline on 07520 631590.

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 getting on, 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 Norfolk families online, you can visit our Talk to Families Near Me page.

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 getting on. 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.

School Readiness Review

Starting school is a big milestone for children. They are probably ready for this next step and will enjoy the learning and the new experiences being at school will offer. We have a lot of information here on Just One Norfolk to help you to prepare your child for school.

Try the online 'Starting School' quiz - answer questions about your child and the results you get will include information most useful for your family.
