Health stations

Information about the health station offer during the Corona outbreak

The Directorate of Health has laid down guidelines for health station operations during the Corona outbreak. We will follow up on pregnant women, the youngest children, childhood vaccines and those with special needs. It is very important that we vaccinate during the Coronaoutbreak, in order to prevent other diseases from flaring up.

The health station should be a safe place to come and we have a great focus on hygiene and will keep some distance where possible. We have planned the operation so that there are not many people in the waiting room.

If children or parents have symptoms of a cold, also mild symptoms, do not attend the appointment. Contact us by phone or mail.

No siblings should be present at the health station.

Everyone who does NOT have to meet at the appointment will be notified of this, by SMS or Digipost. If you have not heard anything from us, you should still come to the appointment.

Follow your health station's website and the Trondheim health station's Facebook page for ongoing information.

If you have questions about a midwife or health nurse, send an email to your health station, mark the email to midwife or health nurse. These are answered continuously.

For questions about Corona, contact the Trondheim Municipality coronavirus hotline on 905 09 052

Health station for children 0-5 years

Once you have given birth or adopted a child, the Health station service will contact you and arrange a time for home visits. The contact is established on the basis of a routine notification of birth from the birth clinic to the health station. Newly relocated families are encouraged to contact a health station in their district.

The health station has a set program for the follow-up and health examination of children. Some families are offered individual follow-up programs beyond this.

The goal of the health station program is:

  • that parents experience mastery in the parenting role
  • to contribute to good interaction between parents and children
  • to promote physical, mental and social development in infants and young children
  • to hinder, prevent and detect violence, abuse and neglect
  • to detect physical and mental developmental abnormalities early
  • to help children receive follow-up and be referred further when needed

Breastfeeding guide

All health centers in Trondheim municipality are certified as breastfeeding proficient by the National Competence center for Breastfeeding .

Midwives provide breastfeeding information during pregnancy. In case of previous negative breastfeeding experience, a breastfeeding plan can be prepared in collaboration with parents and the midwife/health nurse in the next pregnancy.

After birth, all health nurses will be able to offer breastfeeding counseling. A permanent health nurse can refer you to a city-wide offering if needed, where health nurses with further education in breastfeeding counseling offer extended breastfeeding counseling. We work closely with St. Olavs Hospital.
