to be fair i think you should just wait and see before assuming shes trying to push you to go to a group. It may be that shes worried about you. She might be worried that youre depressed or something and just wants to check youre ok.
shes not a health visitor though, she is literally just a woman who runs the groups. plus it says what its about on the letter.
just rechecked the letter and its not this morning like i thought it was, shes coming between 12-1, which is good because it means my windscreen as been replaced so im not going to have to try and politely shoo her out the door so i can get that sorted, but LO has his lunch at 12 followed by a nap so i can have my lunch.....which is not going to happen now
Id make your lunch as normal hun and eat it while she is there!!!
I keep getting letters to go to groups and stuff, my HV doesn't push though. She is quite happy for a quick catch up at vaccinations etc i think she gets that i am not really overly social and will do it when i feel like it. If i ever do lol
... I've just told my HV to not come again . Feeling miles better for doing it. Isaac is loved etc and we only go swimming once a week (if I've got the energy!) so it's jack all to do with her what you do and don't do with your LO.
To me the only things that matter about Isaac is if he's loved, fed and millions of cuddles at the size/age he is now it's amazing. When he's older e.g. 5/6 months and wanting everything in his mouth etc and the mummy cuddles don't happy as much, also sleeping less through the day then We'll have more time to go to things.
Sorry mini rant/essay I know how you feel about them .
Ive never heard of them visiting because a mum didnt want to go to baby groups before! How odd.
I hope you dont mind me asking but, are you a young mum? They seem to try and push groups on younger mums i find! My hv used to bang on about groups Constantly and even told me she'd sign me up for some herself, like i was incapable.
they visited me before when i had just come out of hospital and she said it was routine. she just let me know about all the groups in my area. she said she would ring to make sure i was ok if i didnt turn up to groups....she didnt say she would visit again
im 21, 20 when i got pregnant, so i am a younger mum i guess but im not a teenager
Pfft, theyre idiots. Im 22 and half the time they talk to me like i dont know what im doing.
Agree with others, tell her to sod off.
