    sorry hun, not a clue, as "apparently" in my area you only see the HV at 10/14 days old unless you request them to come out :s hope it all goes ok for you though x

    I've got my 3 month check tomorrow, think they'll just weigh her and see if I have any questions just like the other visits, won't see them after until 6 months I think

    Ours came every 4 weeks until 16 weeks. She asked general stuff like feeding, sleeping and how your getting on, I got a post natal depression assessment form to fill in each time too. She only weighed him at 8 weeks though.

    The health visitor even does the jabs here too! And she visited before Kynon was even born! They do seem quite good here, you get a bag with books, baby toothbrush and toothpaste and Tommy tippi cup given to you at the 8 week check as well.
