    Last time i saw my HV was when my LO was just over 1month old. She told me she will come to see me when my LO turns 3months old...there has been no sign at all so when i went to get my bubs weighed i asked the HV that was their and she told me that they dont have enough HV's left so any questions i have i shall have to ask when i come to get him weighed...do you all have one?? And should i be glad?...

    Nope,we don't have HVs.
    I have a neonatal nurse and if have a question or an appointment to set I either contact her or she contacts me.

    I've got a lovely Health Visitor but i think there might be a shortage of them because mine always seems very busy so most times i just pop down to the baby clinic :)

    What about his immunisations? I take it you get appointments sent out for those alright, that's the only thing I would worry about with not having a HV. The age of my baby I only need to take him down for injections or there is a fortnightly baby clinic if I want to ask something or get him weighed. The girl who does the clinic is not a HV she is a child health something. But she can operate the scales that's the main thing!
