A health visitor is a qualified nurse trained to help you, your family and new baby stay healthy.  A health visitor will visit you at home usually 10 days after your baby is born.

Talk to the health visiting team about any concerns you have, they can give you advice and suggest where to find help. 


Your GP surgery can also support you with any concerns you have for your baby.  The link above will take you to the NHS website with information about how to care for your newborn.
