Please be advised that the Flourishing Babies service will be closing to all referrals on 24 June.  This is because the service is due to close on 31 July when current funding comes to an end.  If, in the meantime, we are able to secure new funding from 1 August, we will start taking referrals again and update this message immediately.  Thank you for your patience.  Please contact a health professional if you are pregnant or have a child aged under 2 and are concerned about your mental health. 


We offer antenatal support and a baby care skills programme for pregnant and new mums and parents to be, 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
