Edinburgh Birth and Baby

If you’re pregnant and wondering about what going on maternity leave will be like for you, then come along to this evening where Edinburgh Birth and Baby will be discussing what you can do to prepare yourself and what might be useful to know about now.

Among the team will be Emma Reid, from Employment Law specialists Ergo Law, and Sarah Wheatley from Birth and Beyond, a counsellor who supports mothers during the transitions of parenthood. It will be an informal conversation, where you can bring your own questions and we will also be talking about some of the topics that we get asked about regularly.

Click here for your free ticket.  Numbers are limited due to space, so if you find you can’t come along, please let us know so we can pass your place on to someone else. Thank you!
