A new suite of digital resources launched this month will provide further information and support to families about pregnancy and parenthood.
The ‘Somerset Maternity Toolkit’, available digitally twenty-four hours a day, is designed to support people through pregnancy and the parenting journey. It offers trustworthy information and support from pre-conception, pregnancy, through to infant feeding and support with parenthood.
It also includes a series of educational animations, an online maternity toolkit, a parent/carer toolkit and the award-winning Mum & Baby app, as well as ‘Parent Hacks’ which give useful tried and tested top tips about support available.
Always digitally accessible, it complements the virtual and face to face support offered by health and care services during Covid -19 (coronavirus) and beyond.
Councillor Clare Paul, Somerset County Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for Public Health and Wellbeing, said:” We are really excited to launch this new and innovative online platform. In a rapidly changing world, the need to digitally access accurate national and local information has never been so important.”
“This will revolutionise the way that families get support making it easier to find and more accessible.”
