Local Birth Buddy Scheme Launch next Tuesday

Chris Satori
Are you expecting? Have you recently given birth? Fed up of hearing horror stories? Lancaster and Morecambe Birth Support Group is about to launch a birth buddy scheme.

If you would like to be a birth buddy, or to be put in touch with someone who’s given birth locally for some email support, come along to their meeting on Tuesday 4 February – 6.30pm upstairs at the Gregson Centre, email them at: or call Holly on 07875469382.

The group will also be talking about Birth Options and there will be the opportunity to borrow books or DVDs from their extensive library on pregnancy, labour and beyond. There will also be time for general chat and to ask any other pregnancy and birth related questions.

Lancaster Birth Support Group meets the first Tuesday of every month at the Gregson Community Centre in Lancaster. The group is run by volunteers and the cost is £1 to contribute to room hire. Partners, grandparents and children are also welcome. Tea (builders and herbal) and coffee is provided. For more information, see our website: or search facebook for Lancaster and Morecambe Birth Support.

Also, don't forget, on Friday 7 February The Breastfeeding Network Star Buddies are holding a discussion session for grandmothers about breastfeeding from 9.30 till 12.30 at Firbank Children's Centre in Lancaster. The session is open to grandmothers and women expecting grandchildren, whether or not they have breastfed. Book your free place via their Facebook page or by texting or calling Ursula Gallie on 07927483425.
