SAPlings projects (social aspects of pregnancy)

SAPlings is a group antenatal project for women over 18 years old with additional social care needs.

They are referred to us by the midwifery team or GP, and can also self-refer if they feel the project would be of benefit to them.

They can attend weekly or occasionally, depending on their circumstances and preferences. They are welcome to bring their children, partners, other relatives and friends.

The project is losely based on the 'Centering' model developed in America, and allows participants to access antenatal care, antenatal education and social support all in one place.

We discuss a wide range of issues including preperation for birth, baby care, mindfullness, healthy lifestyles, healthy relationships and any other topic the group chooses to cover.

We work in strong partnership with other community service providers, and help our clients access the services they offer.

The group members are able to learn from each other's experiences, and provide mutual support.
