Happy birthday to Baby Cafe
LITTLE ones and loving parents gathered around to blow out the candles as Gainsborough’s Baby Cafe celebrated its third birthday.
The cafe, which is run by Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, provides help and support from both skilled health professionals and other mums in a ‘non-clinical cafe-style environment’.
Last year, the cafe allowed mums old and new to benefit from more than 1,000 face-to-face contacts with the health visiting team throughout 50 different group sessions.
LCHS Health Care Coordinator Liz Hillman helped to set the project up in 2010.
“Feedback from mums has shown this Baby Cafe is a real asset to the community in West Lindsey,” she said.
“Having a health visitor at every group session means we can give that expert advice and support in a relaxed atmosphere. Pregnant mums are also welcome to attend.”
She continued: “We can also hire out items such as baby slings, and give parents access to a library of books and resources.”
Liz added: “We find mums are often so busy during the day that they often forget to eat lunch so these sessions are also an opportunity to recharge their batteries with a healthy snack, and meet new friends.”
