The Friday clinic at Golcar clinic ended because the clinic was being closed. New time was on a Thursday at Sure Start on Beech Road.
At Golcar the health visitor weighed the baby and put information on a graph and in the book. At the sure start place I didn’t know what I needed to do, health visitor just told me to undress the baby and weigh her and mark it up on the graph, I wasn’t sure how to do this and felt scared. Health visitor was not in the same room as me – in a different room making calls or doing other things, couldn’t they make the calls after the clinic was over?
But because they weren’t in the room I didn't know who to ask about how to do things and I didn't have help. Couldn't get the baby carrier easily and had to leave the baby on the table. At my sister’s clinic in Brikby it’s different, health visitors are there with you to help. Not sure what happened to my original health visitor.
