DS is 1 week old & haven't heard from a midwife or a health visitor or anyone. The hospital just keep saying they have "faxed my paperwork through" and that I need to just wait at home.

Although now they're saying that I may have to take him to hospital myself for the heel prick thing if I don't hear from anyone today.

Am having a tough time bfeeding and would love just to even have him weighed to see whether he's doing ok. sad

If you call your GP surgery they should give you your HV number and you can call her direct.

Hi - you should definitely have seen someone by now. Ring your midwife team immediately and I bet they will send someone round pronto.

With my second we "fell through the cracks" and didn't get a visit for a few days and they fell over themselves to apologise. A week is way too long.

Hope you get someone round soon.

At this stage it should be a midwife not the HV - ring the number you had for when you were pregnant

Definately chase it up - they may have faxed the paperwork but that's no guarantee of receipt. Congratulations on your new baby smile

Something has gone wrong, agree it should be the midwife not the health visitor so you need to contact the same team you saw antenatally, not the GP surgery unless the midwives are based there (which they usually aren't)
