The Antenatal Support Service offers support to families who are expecting a baby which may be at risk. Sometimes these parents may struggle to establish positive attachment with their baby and may find it difficult to provide a safe and nurturing environment. Our volunteers work with the parents and other significant people in their lives. Together, they create a support plan designed to build on their strengths and identify areas where support is needed.
Who we work with:
Local Children Service Management Groups, Midwives or Social Workers will refer pregnant or new Mums who have not attended antenatal services, who may not be able to cope when the baby is born or who have a child identified “at risk”.
