About iHV Insights

iHV Insights are webinars run just for our members.

These live online sessions are of interest to frontline health visitors and student health visitors, as well as service leads, commissioners and wider members of the health visiting team, both in the UK and with lots of transferable learning for our international members too.

If you are not an iHV member, join us today to access these resources and many other member benefits.

During Infant Mental Health Awareness Week (#IMHAW2020), iHV publishes a new resource for members – Good Practice Points: Understanding babies who cry a lot.

All babies cry and some cry a lot. Some babies may be sensitive to stimuli such as sound, light or changes of environment. Some babies may seem scared or anxious and want to be held and cuddled most of the time.

This Good Practice Point sets out what health visitors need to know about supporting and working with parents to help them understand babies who cry a lot. It provides up-to-date evidence and references.

If you would like access to this new GPP and our other member resources, please join us to get access to these and also to book your place on our new iHV Insights webinar sessions – the next one is being held on 18 June on the subject of Domestic Violence and Abuse.

The iHV is a self-funding charity – we can only be successful in our mission to strengthen health visiting practice if the health visiting profession and its supporters join us on our journey. We rely on our membership to develop new resources for our members.

So do join us now!
