Starting Well

Starting Well​

Healthy Pregnancy

Having a healthy pregnancy is an important part of ensuring the health and well-being of both the mother and baby. We recommend as soon as you find out you are pregnant you book your antenatal care. This can now be booked through your local Family Hub. Sandwell has created their very own journey to a healthy pregnancy to support women and their partners at every stage of pregnancy. Sandwell residents will have access to free antenatal sessions, bump and beyond classes, specialised exercise classes during pregnancy and sessions on early communication.

For more support during your pregnancy and to book free sessions visit the Family Hubs website.

Healthy Early Years

The early years are a critical time in your child’s development. This is when they are learning and growing rapidly, both physically and mentally. Public health services can play a vital role in supporting your child’s development in their early years. These services can help to ensure that all children have a healthy start in life and reach their full potential.

What’s going on?

We work with various organisations and services so parents can access FREE support and advice to help them look after and develop their children.
