Kent children centres information

by Lauren Abbott

Ante-natal groups or classes, some midwife appointments and a bank of information - when it comes to having a baby Kent’s children’s centres are fully prepared for new mums.

You may have already come into contact with and registered at your local children’s centre, particularly if your midwife is based there as many in Kent are. Alternatively you may have contacted them about birth preparation classes or ante-natal groups you could attend to meet other new parents-to-be.

Children’s centres are geared solely to help and support parents with children aged five and under and can provide you and your family both with support and information as well as a number of classes and activities for you and your baby child or children.
