Baby Steps

Supporting you every step of the way on your journey to parenthood

Are you or your partner expecting a baby?

  • Are you worried or anxious about becoming a parent?

  • Do you need a friendly listening ear?

  • Would you like to meet other local expectant families?

Becoming a parent can be difficult for a whole variety of reasons, which is why the Baby Steps team is here to help.

Through home visits and friendly group sessions they will help you feel happier, healthier, more confident and in control.

The group sessions are also a great way to meet other local parents, and the team can also help you access other services in your area.

This support is for expectant families living in the Better Start Bradford area.
*Please Note* An online version of Baby Steps is now available across the Bradford district – please visit the FYI website for more information.

Thank you for your support throughout the difficult time I had during my pregnancy. You have really gone above and beyond to support me and get me the right help.

We were having our first baby, my wife was new in the country, we had no family or friends. Through the Baby Steps programme we had lots of emotional support. We have made a friend who lives locally and that helps my wife socialise in the community.

Baby Steps is delivered by Action for Children
