Community Parents Project:
Information for parents and families
Our volunteers can support you to care well for yourself and your growing baby in pregnancy. They offer emotional support, encouragement and motivation - a kind, non-judgemental ear to listen to you! 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 antental classes, clinics and hospital visits if you feel this may help you.
Since we established the project in 2012, Community Parents has helped support over 80 families with 1:1 peer support, improving holistic wellbeing for vulnerable new mums, giving their babies the best possible start in life, reducing their social isolation, and strenghtening our local community.
In addition to 1:1 peer support, we also run free and weekly exercise classes, a Social Drop-in session for mums to be and new mums to meet and chat over a cup of coffee, as well as quarterly workshops that focus on self-care, parenting and preparing for labour.
Contact the Community Parents team for more information - we would love to hear from you.
