ChatHealth 0-5 is a text messaging service set up to support parents, carers and families of under 5’s in Hampshire.
The service is run by local health visitors who have a wealth of experience of working with mums and dads-to-be, babies, toddlers and young children.
The Health Visiting Team are able to support with questions from parents, carers and families relating to a wide range of health and wellbeing issues including crying babies, infant feeding, starting baby on solid foods, sleep and behaviour problems. As well as giving advice, the team can signpost to appropriate services and other support.
How to use it: Text the dedicated number 07520 615720.
The messages are then delivered to a secure website and a health visitor will be able to provide a response to the text.
