#ReadyforParenthood

Our #ReadyforParenthood campaign aims to support new parents, running across local authorities, NHS organisations and local support groups. Each month focuses on a different aspect of being a parent:

  • Attachment and developing a relationship with your baby
  • Checking your vaccinations are up to date for you and your baby
  • Keeping to a healthy weight, taking regular exercise and eating a healthy diet
  • Feeding your baby
  • Getting a good night’s sleep
  • What to do when your baby is crying
  • Perinatal mental health and wellbeing for parents
  • Healthy relationships
  • Post-natal contraception and spacing your pregnancies; getting ready for a future pregnancy
  • Looking after your own body, pelvic health and postnatal checks
  • Stopping smoking and cutting out or reducing alcohol and drug use
  • Understanding more about if your baby is born early
