Parents Matter - Antenatal and Perinatal Wellbeing Support Service

2min read

Family Lives offers a borough wide antenatal and perinatal support service for new and expectant parents living in Camden. The service will offer support for parents who are experiencing isolation to improve emotional wellbeing and information about Camden services.

We will work closely in partnership with Children’s Centre's/Family HUB partners, midwifery, health teams and mental health services. Whether a first child or new brother or sister, our antenatal and perinatal service will work with mums and dads during the pregnancy and up to 24 months after birth.

How we will support new parents and expectant mothers

The team of locally recruited volunteer peer supporters will visit parents in the family home as well as contact via texts or MS Teams. They will also offer a listening ear to help ease the demands of parenthood and support the parents’ and family relationship. Our range of volunteers speak several community languages too. Our volunteers can provide support by helping to:

  • Improve mental health and wellbeing of new parents
  • Reduce social isolation of families
  • Increase self-confidence of parents
  • Support a positive relationship between parents and their baby

We welcome mums, dads and carers to our Family Lives online and face to face parenting groups, and signpost to local services and resources.
