Baby Clinic / Health Visitor Clinic / Child Developmental checks

From April 2019, the Health Visitor at West Hampstead Medical Centre will be  moving to a  Baby and Child Health  Hub based  at Abbey Community Centre at 222c Belsize Road, Kilburn, NW6 4DJ.

The new hub clinic will allow:

baby clinic

  • Parents to have opportunities for sharing experiences and mutually support each other through a more social experience.
  • A more in depth focus on the parent–child interaction and support for parenting skills.
  • A more interactive experience (outside of weighing and measuring), that allows staff to build a supportive relationship with parents, by giving both space and time for parents to understand their options.
  • Support for baby feeding including a private space for breastfeeding peer supporters to provide 1:1 help where required.

The  Baby Hub Clinic at Abbey Community Centre takes place there every Wednesday morning from 10.00 – 12.00.
