    I agree with Bellybuttons, save the money and get aHealth Visitor to help you when you're back home. I recommend Yvonne Heavyside at Family Zone, she's very kind and understanding.

    Hello Rani,

    Thanks for your advice again. :)
    Just wondering - (cuz her website doesn't seem to give details regarding her service, and I'm thinking of getting some preliminary info before I email her) - what kind of service/consultation does Yvonne provide? How many postpartum visits would you say a typical mum would need? Thanks!

    Yvonne provides the following services:

    - Breast feeding support
    - Advice on all aspects of child care
    - Support for mothers
    - Home safety reviews
    - Domestic helper training and assessment

    Its difficult to say how many visits you'll need. Best is to give a call.

    Hi Mamamau
    Sorry my web site isn't informative yet, I'm just in the process of setting it up. I'll get there eventually!
    Please call me at any time (9887 3235) or email me.
    I would say on average first time parents tend to go for either 5 or 10 home vists but this really does depend on how things go or your expectations. For example if breast feeding is going well and you feel confident and the baby is settled then just a few visits may be all you need. Some of my clients like home vistits over the first few weeks whilst others buy a package and may take a year or even 2 to use the vistits. As a health visitor i am trained in all aspects of child health and development up to 5 years so visits could be to perform a general developmental check of the baby/toddler or to discuss a specific topic such as weaning, going back to work, solid food, potty training, domestic helper issues or postnatal depression.At each visit I weigh and measure the baby and check the Mum (in the early postnatal period).
    I also teach first aid and CPR and work with a physeo and baby massage teacher.
    I hope that helps.
    Yvonne
