I did something I never thought I could.

Debbie – Volunteer Pregnancy Pal

Do you want to make the difference of a lifetime?

Having a baby should be an exciting life changing experience. Sadly this is not the case for all mothers, fathers and partners. Informal support from another local parent who has ‘been there’ can make all the difference.

A Pregnancy Pal is 'someone in their corner' who walks the journey with them during pregnancy, birth and the early months of becoming a parent.

It is about:

  • Supporting mothers to keep as healthy as possible during their pregnancy

  • Helping mothers, fathers and partners:
    • To feel informed and prepared for changes ahead
    • To feel supported during labour and birth
    • To build their confidence after the birth and give their babies the best possible start in life.
