Projects

Our services are
centred around

antenatal education, perinatal wellbeing and postpartum support. Connecting families is at the heart of what we do.

Perinatal Wellbeing Project

Our Perinatal Wellbeing Project is launching in June providing a series of funded wellbeing workshops and Peer Support Groups that are open to all. By providing funded places at our peer support groups we help to connect parents together, and offer specific support in pregnancy and postpartum. Our peer groups include our Kin Cuppa, Positive Pregnancy Socials, Story Sharing Circle, Infant Feeding Support, Sling and Real Nappy meets, Postpartum Health and Wellbeing Drop Ins and our Weigh and Stay monthly meet up. Our Perinatal Peer Support groups are provided in line with the Perinatal Peer Support Framework and our Facilitators undertake Mental Health First Aid and Trauma Informed Training. Further details of our Wellbeing Project are coming soon!

Kin Swap and Share

Our swap and share project is about passing on good quality pregnancy and baby clothes and equipment to support others, improve sustainability and divert unwanted items from landfill. You can join our monthly swap and share in our online community Pregnant or Postnatal Scotland and we will be offering quarterly Swap and Share sessions in our hub when guidance permits. We also take requests and can help to source specific items. Any donations that are received and not passed on within our community will be passed onto our nominated organisations including (but not limited to) Kids Love Clothes, Nappirunz, Welcome Packs for Refugee Kids in Edinburgh and The Baby Boutique by Pregnancy Counselling and Care Scotland.

Accessible Therapies

We are currently developing an accessible therapies project focusing on the perinatal support that we think all mothers and parents should be able to access. This includes talking therapies such as counselling and trauma therapy, therapies to support infant wellbeing and the parent child connection including video interaction guidance as well as physical therapies including women’s health physio. Providing support that is accessible, local and timely can positively impact parental and infant wellbeing at a highly formative time and our support is centred around the 1001 critical days from conception to a child’s second birthday.

How it works

We operate a Pay It Forward model – if you need access to our services and finances are a barrier we can help you. If you are attending any of our funded services we will provide details so that if you are able you can make a pay it forward donation which will enable us to reach more families, continue providing funded places and offer our services to those who need them. You can self refer for our services using our Contact Us from and we also accept referrals from Partner Organisations.
