Wellbeing in Pregnancy for young parents-to-be (Starting Well) – Leicester City​ ​

This antenatal group is for young parents-to-be aged 25 and under who live in Leicester City.

Over the four sessions we cover everything that pregnant parents want to know about to have a healthy pregnancy, both physically and emotionally. We will look at ideas for eating well and keeping active as well as ways to cope with worry, stress and anxiety during pregnancy and how to bond with your baby.

You are welcome to bring along someone who will be supporting you during your pregnancy or when your baby is born.

​Support with transport to the venue is available.
