Learn The Basics Before You Meet Your Baby
Peer Supporters can be found at many local Antenatal Clinics providing up to date and relevant information to mothers to be and families during their antenatal period. If families prefer a peer supporter can carry out a home visit to ensure they receive key information before their baby is born.
