Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Public Health Team, in partnership with the Countess of Chester Hospital Trust and Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Trust, have launched Best Beginnings’ resources at the Stanlaw Abbey Children’s Centre in Ellesmere Port.  

Parents across Cheshire West will benefit from our range of resources which provide help from pregnancy into parenthood: Baby Buddy, the personalised smartphone app; From Bump to Breastfeeding, a set of DVDs following real mothers' experiences of feeding; Small Wonders, supporting the care of sick or premature babies; and Baby Express, a month-by-month magazine covering the first year of a baby's life.

Cheshire West and Chester Councillor Nicole Meardon, Cabinet Member for Children and Families said: “These resources are fantastic for all parents; they provide accurate advice in an accessible way. 

“With a combination of informative videos, magazine and the mobile phone app we will be able to help and offer even more support to parents during this exciting time of their lives.”
