Parenting Support Service

The Parenting Support Service offers a range of group based or online parenting courses for families living in Lambeth. 

Baby Steps

Baby Steps is a 9 week group programme offered to expectant parents/carers living in Coldhabour, Stockwell, Tulse Hill and Vassall (LEAP) wards. 

The course consists of 6 pre-natal sessions towards the end of pregnancy and 3 postnatal sessions once your baby has been born. These sessions are designed to prepare soon-to-be mums and dads for becoming parents and include workshops on how to care for a newborn and reducing the stress new parents often experience.

Sessions are offered virtually when face to face contact is restricted.

All families that are eligible for Baby Steps are contacted directly where they are known to the midwifery services at Guys and St Thomas’ or King's College Hospital.

If you have not been offered Baby Steps and want to check if you are eligible, please register with the Parenting Support Service.
