Social assistance services as health counseling for families with infants

Service Description

Those who are unable to support themselves with their own resources or who are unable to help themselves in special circumstances and who do not receive sufficient help elsewhere have a right to personal and economic assistance. A central goal of social assistance is to strengthen the self-help forces and to make it possible to lead a life worthy of a human being.

During the first months and years of their child's life, many parents experience situations that make them feel insecure, worried or overwhelmed.

Health assistance offers mothers and fathers advice on issues such as:

  • insatiable crying and frequent restlessness of the infant
  • difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep
  • Problems with breastfeeding, feeding and eating
  • Behavioral problems such as excessive anger and defiance, fearfulness or aggressiveness, unwillingness to play
  • separation anxiety and difficulties
  • Tense family situation
  • relationship problems
  • excessive demands, insecurity and exhaustion
  • postpartum depression
