Postnatal Support

Becoming a parent can feel overwhelming especially in the first few months after the birth, whether you are a first time parent or are adapting to a growing family life.  Making sure you feel supported and have the right guidance available is important.  As well as our virtual peer support groups, we have put together some links and guidance which you may find useful.


Virtual NHS Parents Peer Support Forum

These sessions are aimed at staff who are parents, carers, or grandparents. Whether you are brand new to parenthood or experienced, all are welcome. This is a great opportunity to meet other parents, share experiences and spend some time socialising with people who will be experiencing similar ups and downs and challenges. You will meet other parents in a virtual environment and be able to offer peer support, a listening ear or even just vent about some of the things that you might be struggling with. You can also share your successes and milestones and build a small support network.  As everyone will have experience navigating life with children, these will be non-judgmental groups where babies, children, teenagers are welcome.
