A team of health visitors will be at a Balby supermarket on June 14 to promote the antenatal services they offer to Doncaster parents.

The health visitors, who all work for Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH), will be with the Health Bus outside Tesco from 9.30am until 11.30am.

One of the organisers, health visitor Sarah Green said: “We can offer a range of help and advice not only on the health and well-being of the baby but also offer advice to mums and dads too.”

Health visitors can also support residents as they prepare for parenthood, advise on healthy lifestyle decisions such as stopping smoking, diet, and breastfeeding, and how to care for mum, dad and baby.

All parents to be are welcome to attend.
