Parents-to-be Stoke Newington

 Life is about to change in the most monumental way and there's no better time to meet new friends or to make time for some relaxation. 

 

We hope this website will help you meet other parents-to-be in your community.  You can't underestimate the incredible difference it makes to communicate with people wh0 are experiencing the same concerns as you or the preciousness of those friendships once baby arrives. Who else is up every two hours throughout the night for loo stops and who else can tell you what a difference strategically used almond oil can make?

 

Get to know other local parents-to-be: We know there are charities out there which help you get to know each other. But you can also use our New Parents link-up Facebook group as a free way to get in touch with local parents with similar due dates. 

 

And be sure to get your hands on a Local Buyers Club shop-local card to help you find, support and save at brilliant small businesses in the area. 

 

There's so much happening for parents in Stoke Newington - we've done our best to collate what's on but give us a shout if  you're aware of other great services.
