Launch of new self-weigh service for parents

We’ve teamed up with Libraries Unlimited to offer free baby self-weigh facilities in private areas of 16 libraries across Devon during their popular Bounce & Rhyme sessions.

Parents and carers will be given safe guidance around the weighing and plotting of babies and children’s growth and can contact a Health Visitor if they have concerns around any aspect of their baby’s growth or feeding.

Further information on where the self-weigh stations are located across Devon is available on the DCC Education and Families website under the tab marked ‘Health’.  Please follow this link if you wish to explore this – Public Health Nursing – Education and Families ( We fully expect to add additional locations in the coming weeks and months.
