Emma's Diary & Nurofen Announce Health Visitor of the Year Award Winner

MARLOW, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2010) - Health visitors are focused on helping people; including new mums and their babies to avoid illnesses and stay healthy. So it is with great delight that Emma's Diary were recently able to hold a competition for the Health Visitor of the Year award, along with Nurofen for Children.

The work of health visitors was celebrated with a plethora of complimentary entries from women praising the hard work and support they had received from them.

Eventually, Susan Camp of East Yorkshire was selected as the winner after she was chosen from the mountain of entrants received. She not only won the prestigious title but will be rewarded for her dedication to helping new mums and their babies with a bunch of flowers every other month for a year!

The role of the health visitor is traditionally to offer support and encouragement to families, with every family with children under five having a name visitor. Working closely with GPs and midwives, they can offer help and advice to parents on a variety of subjects.

Emma's Diary provide advice to new mums through an online diary as well as special offers, baby competitions and a forum where new mums can exchange advice. A spokesperson, commented: 'Health visitors provide an invaluable role in supporting expectant mums before and after the birth, when they can continue to offer help to mums and dads. It can be a challenging job, but all of the entries we had for this competition really reflected the hard work and compassion given to mums by these wonderful health visitors'.

Health visitors were in the news recently when a study revealed that specially trained health visitors could help to prevent post-natal depression, and with the government claiming they are committed to increasing numbers; it looks as if more women could be supported by the help and guidance of health visitors.
