I am Julia Palmer-Ndu. I’m a London Private Health Visitor. I am a trained nurse that has undergone further training in Public Health and Health Promotion. I work primarily with families with children 0-5 years old. I as a Private Health Visitor will see you at times outside of normal NHS health visiting timescales. I can offer my services at either your home, in a hotel or in a clinic and prices will differ based on travel requirements.
For any new parents wanting more than an NHS health visitor can offer, should consider engaging a Private Health Visitor; this is why I do what I do.
I strive to deliver the greatest quality Private Health Visiting services as well as make my patients feel comfortable and at ease, ensuring they receive the best possible service. I am honoured to have served the London area for over 10 years and have left a longstanding, positive effect on all of my patients. I specialise in a wide range of private maternal and new-born based services such as: private postnatal care, private antenatal care, new parents advice and I am also an infant feeding specialist.
Here at One Stop Health Visiting, our expertise ensures that all patients are in the best and capable hands. My core ideology is that no two new parents or babies’ needs are the same; therefore, regardless of a similar situation, my services are tailored to exactly match the needs of my patients at that particular time.
Private Health Visiting
I offer new parents within London a wide range of Private Health Visiting services that meet their needs. i Also offer virtual consultations to clients who are not within London or Essex. I am flexible and can deliver one to one sessions, advising new parents on how best to treat and care for their babies. I can even deliver group sessions if needed around London and Essex.
As a Private Health Visitor, I offer reliable and professional care for you and your newborn, whilst also advising your close family on how they can help through the stages of pregnancy and after the birth of your baby. My goal is to ensure your newborn is growing healthily and achieving their milestones.
The Antenatal Check is the first time that the parents will meet with a health visitor during their 28th and 34th weeks of pregnancy.

I am an advocate of breastfeeding when the mother is able. I often promote the health benefits and positives of breastfeeding for mother and baby, and how it can greatly aid the baby’s future.

The postnatal time can be referred to as the immediate 6 to 8 weeks after the baby has been delivered. This is a crucial period for many new and existing mothers and it is paramount that they receive the right care and support. Postnatal care should link and be related to the antenatal care services that the mother has undergone during her pregnancy. As a Private Health Visitor, I will carefully assess the mother’s needs, what she prefers and what works best for her. I am to be there for the mother, creating a safe and comfortable atmosphere for her and her family. With the guide of an experienced professional, you can feel as though you are in the safest hands.
The first few weeks of being a new parent can be really challenging. I specialise in giving new parents advice, and offer the opportunity for mothers to discuss how pregnancy is going, any support they may need and any concerns or questions about transitioning to parenthood.
If You have just given birth or adopted and are learning how to take care of your baby – all while trying to figure out what you should do next. It is natural for these changes in life to bring up feelings of confusion, uncertainty, and even fear at times.
Make sure you get enough sleep (you’re going to need it now!). The best way is by getting some rest during the day when your baby sleeps so that whenever he wakes up hungry or needing attention, you’re ready to take care of him.
Put your baby in a safe place that is comfortable for both you and them, such as their crib or bassinet. If they are awake, be sure to keep the room dark so they can grab some rest too! It’s also important that he doesn’t wake up on his own…so if he starts stirring before you head off to bed for the night, try rocking him back asleep until it’s time for everyone else to crash out again.
Soothing sounds like music or white noise might help make your little one feel more relaxed during these times; just remember not turn any speakers towards their sleeping face! And don’t forget: never leave them alone!
