Julie, a registered health visitor and paediatric nurse, has over 24 years’ nursing experience specialising in child health and now works as an independent health visitor, instructor and course tutor for To Baby and Beyond. She is a mother of twins and has supported 100's of families over the years on a range of issues. Julie is passionate about parents feeling supported in those early days and years.
As Julie is independent it means that she's able to arrange a 'virtual call' at a time convenient to you (including evenings and weekends on occasions).
Julie can offer general support and advice on the following:
- Preparing for your baby
- Home safety
- Eating (or not as the case may be)
- General child development and what to expect
- Work life / baby balance
- General concerns
Please note this is not intended to take the place of your NHS health visitor as I am not able to assess your child 'virtually' and always recommend you continue to see your NHS health visitor along side any support we offer. If you would like to discuss your child's development I can only offer general advice and recommend you have your developmental assessments as planned with your NHS health visitor.
Organising support discussion
Sessions include an optional free 15 minute telephone consultation or alternatively please let us know by email the areas you would like to discuss and any concerns you have. This is to ensure we are able to do this remotely.
Typical independent health visitor support may include:
30 minute phone or Skype call - £40
Talk to Julie for 30 minutes to allay any fears or to ask any questions related to a single issue of the health of your child or baby. This level of reassurance can often be all that’s needed to set your mind straight and give you the added confidence to continue caring for your new or developing arrival.
