Home visit

​​​The first Maternal and Child Health visit is usually completed at your home and is a chance for you and your nurse to get to know each other and talk about any concerns.

This visit will focus on:

  • safe sleeping
  • safety in the home
  • immunisations
  • feeding including breastfeeding
  • how play helps learning and development
  • family relationships and wellbeing.

Remember, you and your nurse can talk about other issues/concerns if they arise.
