You can start to bond with your baby before it is born. Simple things like you and your partner stroking, talking to and even singing to your baby while in the womb can start the bonding process. For bonding ideas take a look at the Building a Happy Baby leaflet.
From 28 weeks your midwife can sign you up to a free text service called Flo. Flo will send you texts during your pregnancy and up to 6 weeks after your baby is born with useful tips and information. If you’d like to know more about Flo have a look at our introduction to Flo video. Further information about Flo and how to sign up can be found here.
There’s a lot to do and think about when you’re expecting including preparing to feed your baby when he/she arrives. Start4Life has lots of useful information.
