About us

We're here to support parents. We give them accurate, impartial information so that they can decide what’s best for their family, and we introduce them to a network of local parents to gain practical and emotional support.

Our vision

Our vision is of a world in which no parent is isolated and all parents are supported to build a stronger society.

Our charitable purpose

  • We offer information and support in pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.
  • We campaign to improve maternity care and ensure better services and facilities for new parents.
  • We aim to give every parent the chance to make informed choices.
  • We want to make sure that everyone has access to our services and activities.
