NHS Information Service for Parents will give new parents information and advice they can trust covering a wide range of issues related to staying healthy in pregnancy, preparing for birth and looking after their baby.

By signing up to the service parents-to-be and new parents will receive regular emails and text messages containing relevant and timely NHS approved advice as their pregnancy develops and as their child grows.

Links to videos showing midwives demonstrating practical advice such as bathing your baby, and parents discussing issues that affected them and how they supported each other, will also be sent at appropriate times.

The care and attention a child receives when young will affect their health, behaviour and ability to learn throughout their lives.

Parents will be invited to sign up to the new service at booking appointments with midwives, and organisastions where parents already go for advice and support and will have the option of including a sign-up facility directly on their own websites.
