We offer antenatal support and a baby care skills programme for pregnant and new mums, along with perinatal support on a one to one basis in the family home by a volunteer befriender and in peer support groups and drop-ins.

How it works

The aims of the service are to:

  • increase parents’ self-confidence
  • improve the mental health and wellbeing of new parents
  • support infant mental health and development
  • support a positive relationship between parents and their baby
  • reduce social isolation
  • provide emotional and practical support to families during pregnancy and until the child is two

How can you help?

We can help with a range of issues, including:

  • low mood and anxiety or self-esteem and confidence issues
