Parent and Baby Groups
To find out about local groups:
- ask your health visitor or GP
- look on noticeboards and for leaflets at your local child health clinic, health centre, GP’s waiting room, children’s centre, library, advice centre, supermarket, newsagent, or toy shop
- In some areas, there are groups that offer support to parents who share the same background and culture. Many of these are women’s or mothers’ groups.
Lots of children’s centres also run fathers’ groups and groups for teenage parents.
Your health visitor may know whether there are any groups like these near you.
