Preparation for parenthood

What do we want to happen?

We will support all parents to have a healthy pregnancy and to feel well prepared and confident for the birth and subsequent care of their baby.

What have we done so far?

The Baby Buddy app is now available to parents in Leeds, to support you throughout pregnancy and beyond. It includes videos we developed featuring Leeds families around how to understand your baby;

The Breastfeeding Friendly campaign has been re-launched in Leeds, to make it easier to breastfeed in public by making places more welcoming.

We have developed different information and groups to help you and your family get the right support to stop smoking and to not drink alcohol during pregnancy to help give your baby the best start

We have introduced antenatal sessions for all new parents.
