This is interesting it’s a Government study which suggests all new mothers should be interviewed by a health visitor to see how they are coping. Personally I’m unsure exactly what they hope to achieve here. Having given birth to my baby 3 weeks ago I have already received 4 home visits from the midwife with another scheduled for next week, as well as having a visit from the health visitor tomorrow. Although I realise that the visits are to check on my baby’s progress I personally find the number of visits a little excessive. To receive another interview on top of these, to me just seems too much.
