Baby Steps is a programme that supports parents-to-be with having a baby, becoming a parent and giving their baby the best start.
What is Baby Steps
Baby Steps is a nine-week programme that takes place in a small, relaxed group setting in a local Children’s Centre with other parents. The groups are run jointly by a Midwife or Health Visitor and a Family Support Worker.
These groups start between 28 and 32 weeks of pregnancy.
