Dozens of mums, dads, midwives and councillors attended the launch of Grantham's new maternity community hub launch on December 8.
Better Births Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire County Council were present at the official opening of the new hub at Swingbridge Children’s Centre.
A similar hub has been launched in Lincoln and equivalents will be opened in Skegness and Boston in January.
The Grantham launch was a huge success. The hub will see parents have access to midwives, health visitors, children centre staff, mental health services and a variety of support groups all under one roof. The 12-month pilot will be accessible to parents who are registered at the following GP surgeries: Harlaxton and Woolsthorpe, St Peters Hill, Vine Street, Swingbridge Surgery and Glenside and Market Cross.
Speaking at the event, Sue Jarvis, Lincolnshire Maternity Transformation Programme Manager, said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has attended this event – it really is appreciated.
“To see so many people come together to show this level of team work for our Lincolnshire parents and babies has really touched my heart. So thank you.”
The Better Births Lincolnshire team then presented Swingbridge Children’s Centre with a certificate.
