During your child’s development reviews, your health visitor will ask you how your child is doing and about any concerns you may have. If your baby was born prematurely, their developmental age will be calculated from your original due date, not from the actual date they were born. It is a good idea to think about any concerns or questions you have before you see your health visitor and write them down so that you don’t forget to ask anything.
