Frequently Asked Questions
At HEDI you will find specific counselling services for pregnant women and young families which are offered in doctors' and midwives' practices, clinics, hospitals and authorities. With HEDI, you can quickly find out who to contact with your inquiry.
The easiest way to do this is to send an email to our contact address. We just need some information on the counselling services you provide to complete your registration. At a minimum, you should send us your homepage, contact details and address. Starting in spring 2022, users will be able to enter their counselling services themselves.
The HEDI project consists of three parts: information, communication and coordination. The information sub-project is being funded as a project of the Health Region Göttingen/South Lower Saxony within the framework of the Lower Saxony Healthcare Regions. The communication and coordination parts are funded by the European Social Fund within the framework of the Social Innovation Program.

HEDI is currently a local project which is being developed together with the city of Göttingen and the districts of Göttingen and Northeim. The services registered are therefore limited to these areas. More districts will be added later on.
HEDI uses the IP address of your Internet connection to determine an approximate location. IP addresses are numbers that identify individual computers on the Internet. No personal data is collected and no cookies are saved on your computer. We do not send your data to third parties and we delete it directly when you leave the site.
We determine your location using the IP address of your internet connection. This has many advantages and is very safe, but it can be inaccurate sometimes. Please enter your postal code if HEDI shows your location incorrectly.
