  1. Health Visitors sound invasive, but like they’d be very useful for families with special considerations (young mom, parents who are not sure about how to parent, etc).

    1. Exactly. This is why I found it so odd. I wouldn’t perhaps class myself as someone in need so I felt like I was taking a service from someone who would need it more.

  2. Hmm. I haven’t ever heard of something like that. Of course, in the US, we don’t have NHS, so that’s not something we have. We do have something called Parents as Teachers, who do pretty much the same thing, but the parents generally have to set that up and sign up for it. I know they screen more for post partum mommy blues and well being in the beginning and then developmental milestones later. Sounds like a well intentioned, but maybe intrusive program
