Main Services Provided

The programme combines antenatal care and parenting education and is a new pioneering way of delivering maternity care to first time parents.

The Public Health Agency (PHA) coordinates the EITP throughout Northern Ireland and aims to improve outcomes for children and young people through embedding early intervention approaches.

Getting Ready for Baby programme includes all the same information as traditional ‘parent-craft’ classes but it also helps parents to start developing that early formative relationship with their baby.

The programme includes advice on emotional health and wellbeing and is designed to help both parent and baby through pregnancy, labour and birth along with providing a strong foundation for secure attachment and positive mental health.
