"I was feeling alone and isolated from the community before Bump Buddies. I had no knowledge of services available to me. I had no one and Bump Buddies made me feel like I wasn't alone.” Service-user, 2015
We are all Hackney women who know and love our community and want to share our knowledge with you.
We are here to help you to find the information you need, whether you are expecting a child yourself or supporting a mother-to-be. There are many excellent and often free services in Hackney, provided by the voluntary and statutory sectors. We can identify which of these can help with different situations that come up during pregnancy and early parenthood, and with other issues that may be causing difficulties outside the pregnancy.
The impact of social issues such as housing and unemployment may heighten during pregnancy and early motherhood. Bump Buddies understand this and have developed great partnerships with local advisers, community groups and national charities. We are able to signpost to the right service(s) for your needs and provide follow-up support to access them.
