Welcome to the World

Contact details and a summary of what our projects are delivering during the COVID-19 pandemic can be found at: https://www.betterstartbradford.org.uk/news/stillheretohelp/


This project is for: anyone expecting a baby, usually between 20-30 weeks’ pregnant
It’s delivered by:
Better Start Bradford and Bradford Council

Welcome to the World is a free, friendly antenatal course for any family expecting a baby. Over eight sessions it helps expectant parents and carers prepare for life with a new baby, whether it’s their first child or not.

The Family Links approved course is packed with useful advice, ideas and discussions, including:

  • Looking after your baby while they are in the womb
  • Practical tasks of caring for a new baby
  • Communicating and bonding with babies
  • Understanding baby brain development
  • Exploring your future and the move into parenthood
  • Exploring your roots, traditions, hopes and concerns
  • Considering how parents and carers can look after themselves too

It enables expectant parents to share experiences with each other and explore the changes that new babies bring, and how families can provide them with the best possible start in life.

Where is it delivered? The course takes place in family hubs (formerly children’s centres) across the Better Start Bradford area.

How do families book? Perinatal co-ordinators will contact pregnant women in the Better Start Bradford area and offer them the course. You can also contact 01274 437523 / [email protected]
