New film showcases Health Visiting Service

Baby HubWith the help of local mums, dads and their children, Gloucestershire Care Services has produced a short film explaining What the Health Visiting Service Does.

Featuring our very own Health Visiting Team, Community Nursery Nurses and Public Health Nurses, the film talks about the services available to families in Gloucestershire; from pregnancy and preparing for parenthood, through to breastfeeding, sleep, child development, parenting, illness, immunisation and family mental health.

It also offers an insight into the professional knowledge and expertise available to families seeking help and advice with positive touch, infant feeding, sleep, food, diet and exercise and dental health.

A big thank you to the mums, dads and children who kindly allowed us to film them at one of our New Baby New Life Hubs.
