The HSE Nurture Programme -  Parents have their say

We are providing implementation support to the HSE on the Nurture Programme – Infant Health and Wellbeing, a programme of work designed to improve the information and professional supports provided to parents during pregnancy and the first three years of their baby’s life.

The HSE want to hear the views of parents of young children and expectant parents to help shape the development of new resources which will be produced as part of the programme, including a new website.

One of the ways that parents’ perspectives are being gathered is through an online survey. The survey will be live until January 8th.

Help the HSE to improve pregnancy and child health information. If you are a parent, or planning to be a parent, please fill in this survey. You can also share this link widely with your personal and professional networks.
