Family Action - Bumps, Bonds and Babies (Family Action)

20 local women will be trained as volunteer ‘buddies’ in Wednesbury to support 40 new mums through pregnancy and their baby’s first year to help them develop the strongest possible bond in the early years which is so crucial to a baby’s development. Trained buddies will support new mums on a one-to-one basis, providing both emotional and practical support – particularly to those facing isolation or poor mental health which can have a negative impact on their relationship with their baby.
