The Family Zone

Welcomes you

Helping your child and your family grow and flourish through acceptance, warmth, love and kindness.

Home: Welcome
About us...

The Family Zone was established in 2005 by Yvonne Heavyside, a British-trained Lactation Consultant, Health Visitor and Community Nurse. Since Yvonne has retired, the business has been taken over by Dr. Michelle Ng.

In the UK, health visitors visit all mums and babies at home once the mum leaves hospital. The health visitor is there to offer support and advice on breast feeding, care of the postnatal mother and of the newborn and to help deal with any family issues. The health visitor monitors the physical and mental development of the baby until the baby is 5 years old.

Our goal is to provide personalised and empowering support to families as they navigate their way through the early years.
