Pregnancy and birth are key periods of transition in an individual's life and can be the driver for making important choices and changes. Community Parents are trained volunteers and offer effective support to mum and dads-to-be, to foster a positive experience and help prevent future difficulties.
For pregnant & new mums;
Here for you
Our volunteers support, encourage and motivate you during pregnancy and the first year of parenthood. Some of the things that our volunteers support families with include discussing your birth options and helping you to create a birth plan. They can also accompany you to antenatal classes, clinics and hospital visits if you feel this may help you.
Ganyat, one of the wonderful mum's we support, shares her experience with our volunteers below.
