Parents & Parents to Be

There's a lot to learn as a Parent to Be as well as after baby arrives.

There is lots and lots of useful information available on the net for you to read; you might like to have a browse after a session on face book, or when the on line shopping has been done.

It is important that any advice you use on line is moderated, accurate and easy to follow.

We think that the NHS Information Service for Parents is a good site, and we include the link here to it https://www.nhs.uk/InformationServiceForParents/pages/signup.aspx

It is a new digital service, NHS Information Service for Parents,  which provides parents with information and advice covering a wide range of issues related to staying healthy in pregnancy, preparing for birth and looking after their baby. By signing up to the service, parents-to-be and new parents will receive regular free emails, videos and text messages containing relevant and timely NHS approved advice as their pregnancy develops and as their child grows. Mothers and fathers can sign up individually to the service from early in pregnancy until a month after their baby is born.

The emails include information from NHS Choices, The Pregnancy Care Planner and the online Birth to Five guide along with videos showing health professionals demonstrating practical advice and parents discussing their own experiences. The service provides information covering a wide range of issues for parents including how a baby develops, finding antenatal preparation, improving their own health, breastfeeding and immunisations. It also sign posts parents to wider appropriate sources.

 

We would also recommend the Emma's Diary website   www.emmasdiary.co.uk

 

We would also strongly recommend you popped along to the Half Crown Wood Children's Centre at St Batholemew's Primary School in Stourport.  On your first visit you could always go along with a friend.  It's a friendly place, which provides parents and carers with an opportunity to meet new people, compare experiences with other parents, and get any advice you might want.

This link gives you more information.
