Introducing Lisa Fraser, our new Health Visitor at The Edinburgh Practice!

We are delighted to introduce our new Health Visitor Lisa Fraser! Lisa has a wealth of knowledge and experience, having worked within the NHS for over a decade. Lisa first started her professional journey as a Mental Health Nurse and has since transitioned into her role as a Health Visitor.

Lisa’s experience covers a wide range of support areas, from assisting families with the initial adjustments of welcoming a new member to their family, to providing guidance as their child steps into education. Lisa supports new parents with feeding, sleep routines, developmental milestones, toileting, and behaviour. Each family presents a unique set of circumstances, and Lisa tailors her support to suit their individual needs.

Lisa’s training in Newborn Behavioural Observations (NBO) is a powerful tool which helps demonstrate the abilities of newborn babies in the first 3 months of life, how they are communicating with you, and how each individual baby has unique abilities. Lisa is also experienced in delivering parenting groups such as Baby Bonding.

The Solihull Approach is central to Lisa’s practice, which emphasises the importance of nurturing parental emotional well-being to facilitate healthy child development. Lisa is passionate about promoting parental mental health, increasing parenting confidence as well as strengthening parent-infant relationships. She prides herself in working in a strengths-based, person-centred way as every family are truly unique and require support that is tailored to them.

We are delighted to welcome Lisa to team TEP!
