Infant feeding support is offered by all members of the Health Visiting team at the new birth visit and any follow up contacts at home or in the child health clinic. Health Visitors, community nurses and nursery nurses undertake the UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative Breastfeeding training and can provide mothers and families with information and practical support to help you achieve your feeding goals.

Our services are aligned with the UNICEF credible, worldwide UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative.

We aim to provide sensitive and effective care, enabling mothers to make an informed choice about feeding, get breastfeeding off to a good start and overcome any challenges.

We provide support and information to parents who are formula feeding their babies, this includes helping them to feed safely and responsively.

Pregnancy and the period after childbirth are significant times of change in a person’s life. It is common for women and their partners to experience many different emotions during this time.

Health Visitors will be asking about your mental health at every contact. If you are struggling with your mental health then your health visitor can offer you additional appointments to support you with this. These are called listening visits and they are an opportunity for you to express how you are feeling without judgement.

If you require further support then your health visitor can advise you about additional services and refer you to them. In some cases, your health visitor may also suggest a referral to the specialist perinatal mental health team. If you wish, your health visitor can work together with these other teams to provide you with effective, coordinated care.

You can access our New Baby, New Feelings resources for your local area here.

Our children's speech and language therapy teams assess, diagnose, and provide therapy for children and young people with speech, language, communication and/or swallowing problems to help them communicate to the best of their ability.
We work in partnership with parents, nurseries, children’s centres and school staff to embed communication goals in a child’s everyday environment.

Our children’s dietetics service is a team of registered dieticians who specialise in children’s nutrition. The service provides support for children with food allergy and intolerance, coeliac disease, complex obesity, dysphagia, enteral feeding, gastroenterology, faltering growth and malnutrition, restricted diets, special needs, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. 

Our Children’s Community Nursing service are a team of children’s nurses who provide nursing care to children with nursing needs in order to reduce attendance and admissions to hospital, and expedite hospital discharge.
They do this by providing hands on clinical care e.g. blood tests, giving chemotherapy, passing nasogastric feeding tubes, giving intravenous antibiotics, monitoring oxygen etc., as well as teaching and supporting parents and other care givers, such as extended family and school staff.
Support also includes the ordering and supplying of equipment necessary for the child, and liaising closely with other professionals involved with the child and family.

The service is for children aged 0 – 18 years living in Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, and Westminster or registered with a GP in these boroughs. If you do not live in one of these areas, your child can be referred to your local team. 

It is important that we all work together to keep children and young people safe from harm.

If you believe a child is at risk of immediate harm please call the Police on 999.

If you are worried that a child may be suffering, or may be at risk of harm you can refer to the Westminster social care team here.
