What should I expect and do I need to prepare anything for a Nurturing Well home visit?
The home visit is an opportunity to get to know you and baby, and talk with you about how we can help. Sometimes we need to have a closer look at you and baby and watch you feed baby.
In preparation for the visit:
Please let us know:
if you or anyone in the family have been unwell recently
any access safety issues
where to park safely
if there are likely to be other people present
a seat and clean flat surface like a table if we need to lie baby down to have a closer look or weigh baby that would be great.
Your Blue Book and Medicare details will also be helpful.
