Becoming a parent

When you become a parent, your whole life changes. You have someone else to love and look after. Being a parent can be a wonderful and rewarding experience, but it can also be exhausting, stressful and a bit of a mystery - babies don't come with instructions!

There is a Young People's Maternity Practice in Southampton who are midwives who work specifically with under-18s. They can be contacted on 023 8079 6187 or 07771 772140.

Family Lives has information and advice for parents on all aspects of parenting.

Southampton Family Information Service (FIS) provides free, impartial information and advice about childcare, things to do and family services in the Southampton area. Further information can be found on the Southampton Inofmration Directory website
