Health Services

St Michael’s Children’s Centre links with health partners to provide information, support and services for all families relating to health care. These include antenatal and postnatal care, baby weighing, child development health checks and advice. Whether you have just found out that you are pregnant, or need support with your baby, we are able to help you at St Michael’s.

 

Ante-Natal

 

  • Baby & Me Fitness – Friday 09:30-10:15am - there is no need to book and your first session is FREE.  A great way to exercise with your baby.

  • Midwifery Services - local midwives offer ante-natal appointments and care in our specially equipped health room.

  • Pipps (Providing Information and Positive Parenting Support) – This is a specialist ante-natal service provided for young mums.

  • Baby Steps is a FREE course that helps mums-to-be and their partners prepare for being a parent. Most antenatal programmes just tell you about the medical aspects of birth. Baby Steps goes much further and will help you get ready for your new life with your baby.

 

Post-Natal

 

To book a midwife or health visitor appointment, or find out about any of the services listed above, either call into the centre of telephone 024 76494171 for more information.

 

  • Health Visitor Support – Our centre health visitors hold regular sessions in the centre to give health advice and support for you and your baby. Every family with children under five years has a named health visitor who can advise parents on their child’s:
    • Growth and development

    • Immunisation programmes

    • Safety in and outside the home

    • Common illnesses

    • Everyday difficulties, e.g. teething, sleeping, feeding, temper tantrums

       

  • Cot Gossip and Feeding Support – A regular weekly session for mothers of babies until they become mobile. The group is regularly supported by the health visiting team and includes support for feeding your baby.  You are also welcome to stay for lunch afterwards.  Check our Facebook page for the latest menu.
