Tameside Pregnancy and Baby Fair Success

Press Release: 27/11/2023

Tameside PregnancyThe first Tameside Pregnancy and Baby Fair received great feedback from visitors and stallholders alike as it brought a wealth of information from key services under one roof.

Parents and parents-to-be had the opportunity to speak to specialists such as midwives and health visitors, as well as early years services from the Family Hubs team. The fair had 28 stalls offering information from organisations including the Home-Start Infant Feeding team, Dad Matters, and Maternity Voices Partnership, and small, locally run companies providing services to families.

Taking place at Hyde Town Hall, the unique event was free to attend, allowing parents to benefit from opportunities to have antenatal learning and support, and help with the smooth transition into parenthood.
Executive Member for Population Health & Wellbeing, Councillor Eleanor Wills commented:

“It’s fantastic that Tameside has provided this opportunity for parents and carers to speak to essential services to help on their pregnancy and parenting journeys. Our local family hubs continue to provide this free support and run lots of groups throughout the week, which I hope more families will access.”

It is hoped that parents are aware of the huge range of support on offer via Tameside’s family hubs, which provide free advice, activity sessions and support groups in Ashton, Droylsden, Stalybridge and Hyde. The centres offer services for children and young people from 0-19-years-old, and up to 25-years-old for those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), as well as their parents and carers.
