No need to prepare. They’ll just measure baby, check they you are recovering from birth, give you information on breastfeeding and sids anddthe like. If there is anything you are struggling with like breastfeeding, depression, domestic violence or anything you are a bit unsure about then this is a good time to talk about it.
Mine just went through a questionnaire and made sure she had all my details correct. She did ask about domestic violence/abuse so don't be shocked if that comes up. I think they just want to get a general idea how you're feeling about the whole thing, and see if there's anything to flag up that you might need some extra assistance. Nothing too horrendous!
They just want to take your details, ask a few (slightly intrusive but important) questions and check you don't live in a crack den. I like the fact they now come antenatally, I hated the stranger turning up when I was a weepy post-partum mess.
Just had mine a couple of weeks ago. They asked for some info - name, Due date, DOB for me and DH, etc. Then told me about the HV service - what they are for, how they can support you, and the schedule of visits after baby is born. She spoke about feeding options and support for breastfeeding.It was only about 20-30 min.
My antenatal midwife home visit was when she asked to see where the baby would sleep and checked my bump, bp, urine test. And spoke about birth plan and breastfeeding.
Questions about us, talked about safe sleeping, pets round babies (no idea why as we don't have a pet), information on baby clinics etc. She did ask to see where baby would be sleeping but we still had builders in and nothing was ready so I declined.
They recommend baby is in your room for 6 months anyway so if Moses basket is in your room that is fine. My hv didn't even want to see the room.
The can generally get the feel of the place just by your appearance and the downstairs etc. They will be making sure it's a safe /clean (within reason) place. They won't be expecting immaculate never been lived in houses.
Don't be worried though. They are not there to judge but to offer support and help.
