About Us

We founded the Nurture Hub with the aim of offering support to families in our local community, helping them to live well at every life-stage, from family planning to pregnancy and beyond.

We were inspired to create an organisation that made it easy for women and families to access mental health support, at a time when they often feel most isolated and alone.

Through our own experiences and those of our friends, we realised that, although organisations like NCT provide invaluable support during pregnancy, families want to feel nurtured and engaged in a supportive network of peers long-term. Our team is small and dedicated to creating long term relationships with our clients.

We aim to develop health and wellbeing services that grow with you, developing in-depth knowledge of your individual needs with the wrap around support of a familiar community network. From helping you enjoy an empowering birth experience right through to helping your family live a healthy lifestyle, we’ll be there to support you.

The Nurture Hub offers courses and one to one sessions to provide you with all of the support you will need during family planning, pregnancy, postnatally and onwards.

We aim to grow as our families grow and will develop further courses and classes in response to your changing needs and milestones.
