Harrow Road Maternity Champions are a trained team of local people who volunteer to provide support for expectant and new parents through pregnancy, childbirth and the transition into parenthood. Being pregnant and having a baby is an amazing experience but at times can be overwhelming and isolating.
We work closely with midwives, health visitors and children’s centre staff, our volunteers are on hand to guide and support new parents, increase the uptake of support services, give advice on keeping healthy and active, feedback views and reduce isolation and vulnerability by encouraging new parents to support each other.
Our focus is to support the health and wellbeing of the expectant and new mothers and their children within our community and the wider community. We aim to achieve this by engaging proactively in outreach and community activities.
Who we are?
We are a local group of trained volunteers that have a passion for the supporting expectant and new mothers within our community. We engage with parents to advise and guide them towards options that support them on their journey into parenthood.
Our experience has been achieved over many years of engaging with expectant and new mothers within our local community, the tacit knowledge we have obtain from our work is paramount to achieving better results in having a greater social impact. It is our intention to spread our love to enable and empower expectant and new mothers.
To reach as many expectant and new mothers as possible to support them in their journey as a new parent and engaging in activities to support their health and wellbeing.
We believe that it takes a community to improve the health and wellbeing of the expectant, new mothers and their children. Anything can be achieved when people work together collectively you just must believe.
