health visiting

Health visitors are trained and registered nurses and/or midwives who have undertaken further academic study and clinical placements to become registered Specialist Community Public Health Nurses (Health Visiting) – SCPHN-HV.  They support families with children age 0-5 years and parents who are about to have a baby.  Having a new baby can bring lots of challenges including how to feed the baby, parenting choices, keeping babies and children safe as well as making decisions to ensure babies and children are as healthy as possible.  Precious Beginnings can empower you to make informed choices based on what is best for your family without judgement or criticism.

Health visitors are trained to ‘search’ for health needs and sometimes needs arise that are not included in the list above – the list is not exhaustive and you can expect Precious Beginnings to offer help and guidance as need arises within the limits of competence for the health visitor.

Precious Beginnings has several ways parents can engage our health visiting services following an initial free 10-15 minute phone call.  We believe in open, honest and accessible pricing:

Skype or Phone Call - £20
per 30 minutes (£25 after
6pm or on a weekend)

You will be surprised what can be covered in just 30 minutes! This package is ideal if you need advice on a specific topic or feel you need some reassurance about your child. After the call you will receive a summary report of the consultation via email.
