Early Parenthood Service


  • Health Visitor Talking To Mother With Young Baby

The Early Parenthood Service is a targeted service made up of a team of nurses with special training and experience in working with families in the pregnancy and early childhood period.

Our aim is to support families (mums, dads and partners) from 12 weeks in pregnancy who identify as needing additional  support up to when the baby is around 12 weeks (depending on the families individual needs). We aim to help them be the best parents they can be. A Request for support can be made from early pregnancy until 28 weeks in pregnancy.  Consideration will be given for exceptional circumstances e.g. a parent who was late to book with or did not receive midwifery care in pregnancy.
