Supporting you BEFORE your baby is here


The transition into parenthood can be an overwhelming time but the right support and preparation goes a long way to making it a positive and empowering time. It is never too early (or too late!) to begin preparing for after your baby arrives and at the New Baby Network we believe that starts with parents-to-be meeting and being supported by parents!

We have specific sessions if you are pregnant, including in person antenatal events, preparing for newborn sleep sessions online and a downloadable perinatal planner. 

Our antenatal sessions run on the last Saturday of every month, 2-4pm at Merry Hill Shopping Centre Community Room. They are completely free and open to you at any point in your pregnancy. Your supporters and other children are welcome to come with you.

You are also welcome at any Milk Mates before your baby is born. Led by friendly and experienced peer supporters it is the perfect way of preparing for after the birth of your baby. The groups are friendly, safe spaces to talk through options and meet other local parents. Having a great local support network around you can really help with mental wellbeing as a new parents.  Check out our Eventbrite for all the details of our groups.

Here are all the details for our upcoming antenatal events. Always free, always evidence based, always open to everyone.
