Baby Steps

Baby Steps is a parental education programme offered to all new parents from around 26 weeks of pregnancy until the early weeks following birth.

The aim of Baby Steps is to support new parents. You'll learn more about caring for your baby, reduce the stress that often occurs whilst caring for a newborn and better understand their health, development and emotional needs.

This course covers:

  • baby’s development
  • parent infant interaction
  • relationships and support
  • mental and physical health and wellbeing
  • the practicalities of parenting
  • labour and birth
  • babycare

Both parents are welcomed to nine sessions (six antenatal and three postnatal). We'll visit you at home before the course to explain what the course covers and then again when you complete the course. The whole experience spans over a five month period.

The team providing the course includes:

  • FNHC health visitors
  • midwives
  • Baby Steps facilitators

The sessions are delivered at a range of venues in town and in the east and west of the island.

If you would like to attend these sessions, speak to your GP or midwife to book a spot before you reach 20 weeks pregnant.

NCT

All NCT courses are led by specially trained and experienced practitioners who understand what matters to new mums and dads.

This is a group session so it gives you the opportunity to meet other parents in your area. You can book a weekend course or a set of evening sessions.

The course will cover:

  • the development of your unborn baby
  • changes for you and your partner
  • your health and wellbeing
  • giving birth
  • breastfeeding
  • caring for your baby
  • which people and services are there for you
