Posted by extremely angry towards health visitors (as ),
since getting a new health visitor ive been put under the spotlight because he doesnt meet with their guidebooks! had to keep repeating that im not worried we are a small family and none of my kids have been the "correct" size for their ages. this health visitor made my son have bloodtests and put through that terror because of ignorance, the bloods came back normal as I expected and the consultant took note of mine and dads sizes and concluded he is in fact where he should be based on our family!
these people make my blood boil, I know my children more than a non medical "professional" does and if I was worried I wouldn't waste my time with these people I'd take them to the GP who is medically trained and doesnt' base every child on a silly guidebook. All kids are different! I will not allow a health visitor near my children again ever!
