"Health and Family Support Team - Sure Start Summer House"

About: Mansfield & Ashfield

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

The following details a parent's story, who accesses services at Summer House Children's Centre:

I found out I was pregnant with my second child when my first was 11 months old. This was certainly a surprise and I wasn't sure I was ready for another baby and anxious about how we could cope with the practicalities of another baby, having such a small age gap.

My midwife suggested I refer myself (and our family) for family support through the children's centre.

The Health and Family Support worker helped me see the positives of a small age gap, ideas to manage everyday practicalities and most importantly she listened.

Family Support has been and is continuing to be invaluable to my family and I - thankyou: -)
