The Southport, Formby & Ormskirk branch of the NCT is teaming up with Freshfield Children's Centre to offer a new group for expectant parents. The informal group, which will start on the 16th May and run for three consecutive Wednesdays from 6.30 until 8.00pm, will offer mums and dads-to-be an opportunity to meet other expectant parents, find out about local services and pick up practical tips on pregnancy and early parenthood.
The group is free and open to all expectant parents and their birthing partners. Refreshments will be provided. Catherine Bartlett, the local Branch Coordinator of the NCT says 'In Formby we are really lucky to have a village centre and we hope that by starting this new group we will help create a local network of parents in Formby who can provide each other with practical and emotional support'
The NCT already runs a Bumps & Babies group on the second and fourth Monday of every month from 1.30-3.00pm.
If anybody would like further information on either group they can e-mail Catherine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
