Health visiting teams are #StillHereToHelp

Surrey County Council and Children & Family Health Surrey have launched a #StillHereToHelp social media campaign with two Surrey Mums to support parents and carers who have had, or will have, babies during the coronavirus pandemic.

The campaign is centred around two Surrey Mums, Amy and Kayleigh, who share their personal, and 'emotional', experiences of having babies during the pandemic. You can find out more about their stories and experiences in the videos below.

#StillHereToHelp

Health visiting teams are there to provide advice and support to new parents if they are struggling, but many parents are unaware that they are still able to reach out to them during the coronavirus pandemic. With issues such as loneliness, lack of support and limited social interaction all compounded by lockdown, it is more important than ever to make parents aware that health visiting teams are still working and there is help available to them.

Parents can either book a face to face appointment with health visiting teams, call them, or go to the Children and Family Health Surrey website for more information and support, which includes plenty of advice and helpful tips.

If you are ever concerned about the safety of a child or young person you can contact the Surrey Children's Single Point of Access (C-SPA) via the Children's services webpage.
