A FREE drop in session is being held this weekend to offer advice about pregnancy and child birth.

Barnsley Hospital midwives will be joined by health visitors, children centre staff and nursery nurses to give advice on healthy eating, stopping smoking, emotional health and wellbeing, infant feeding and home safety. The drop-in session is on Saturday (June 16) from 10 – 11.30am at Penistone Grammar Advanced Learning Centre. Anne Smith, Public Health midwife at Barnsley Hospital, said: “Whether you’re just thinking about having a baby, or you’re already pregnant, or someone you know is pregnant this is a great opportunity to come and find out more. "If you’re thinking about having a baby, we can advise you on how to get your body fit for conception, and on how to keep yourself healthy during pregnancy and afterwards.”
