About Us

The Village!

Your number 1 family friendly organisation providing families and their babies with resources to enhance care, knowledge and  physical and social development .


The saying goes "It takes a village to raise a child" 

We are your village, we are a team of local mums, trained in our fields, coming together to create one space, so you can access  care, support, nourishment and friendships.

We offer antenatal classes and support throughout your pregnancy right through the early months of your new baby,  and beyond. With the cloth nappy and sling library, breastfeeding support & so much more available in our free hub.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
