A free five week programme facilitated jointly by the health visiting team and your local children’s centre staff.

Your new baby and you group is offered to first-time parents and those with a large gap. The sessions enable new parents to meet other new parents whilst exploring and learning about relevant topics for the first year of a baby’s life.

The range of topics includes:

  • What’s it like having a new baby
  • How your baby’s brain develops
  • Starting solid foods- Why wait until 6 months?
  • Minor ailments
  • Bounce and rhyme/treasure baskets

There is a chance to have a chat and to ask any questions. There are also fun activities such as ‘footprints’ and a baby group photo.
Come along - It is a great way to meet people with similar aged babies and to find out what’s going on at your local children’s centre.
In addition to this group we also provide sessions for introducing solid foods, ‘and so to bed’, and toileting
