What is a family nurse?
Family nurses have been selected for their healthcare backgrounds as registered nurses, midwives, and health visitors; in addition they been specially trained to deliver this programme. Your family nurse’s aim is to recognise your strengths and to build on these, enabling you to be the best parents you can be. The family nurse will work with you to help you achieve your goals and to improve the health and wellbeing of you and your new family.
How can the service benefit you and your child?
You will still have your midwife, doctor and any other professionals who may be involved in your care. Your family nurse has special material that can be shared with you and can discuss needs specific to you. If you have an issue that your family nurse can’t help you with, they will be able to signpost you to the relevant professionals to meet your needs. Your family nurse will be able to spend more time with you per visit than your other healthcare professionals (about one to one and a half hours per visit).
