Help parents in your area find local services through Baby Buddy

You can add local services in to Baby Buddy so that parents and parents-to-be can find the support they need. 

These services should be:

  • relevant to pregnant families and new parents
  • accessible to all
  • free at point of use or require only a small, nominal fee (e.g. those provided by the NHS, a local authority or charity)

We particularly welcome charities to contact us to discuss how Baby Buddy can showcase your services; please contact [email protected]. We do not feature corporate, paid-for services in Baby Buddy. 

How can I add information?

All suggested content for Bump Around and Baby Around must reviewed and approved by Best Beginnings staff, so any place you suggest will not appear right away, and may not be featured at all. Please note that we are a small team and this may take some time. 

Please ensure that your information will remain valid for some time and do let us know if the information changes as we like to ensure our information is up to date. 

You can suggest a single place through the app itself by tapping "Add Place" within the Bump Around or Baby Around feature. If there are lots of places you would like us to feature you can complete this form and send it to [email protected]

What places currently feature in Baby Buddy? 

Bump Around and Baby Around currently features data drawn primarily from NHS Choices, which lists locations nationwide of useful places like clinics, support services, places to exercise. Best Beginnings is offering local authorities, NHS organisations and charities the opportunity to supplement the syndicated NHS information with their own data.
