Best Start Postnatal Groups

Best Start is our 6 week postnatal programme for parents and their baby/babies aged 6 months and younger.  Sessions are relaxed and welcoming and the group is a great way to meet other parents and get up-to-date parenting information on topics such as weaning,teething, sleep etc.

This group will run from different locations and venues across Stroud District and Quedgeley throughout the year.  For upcoming groups please see details below. Click here for: GROUP-START TIMETABLE 2017-2018
