Home Start Edinburgh West and South West

Group work/ classes: Initial online introductions are 1:1 then you can join an Infant Massage or baby Peep group. Infant massage focuses on the benefits of touch and communication to support bonding and attachment.

The Peep Learning Together Programme focuses on singing, story telling and activities you can do in the home to support your baby’s learning and development and enhance your relationships. All our groups are a place for safe and confidential sharing, listening and offering peer support.

We hope parents will get to know one another in small Infant Massage groups and go on to meet a wider peer group at baby Peep. A limited number of small sensory packs are available for use at home and to bring to Peep if / when face to face meetings become possible.

Parental Support: You will be matched with a trained and committed parent befriender, either a volunteer or member of staff, who will support you in a way to suit you, eg a weekly call, text, WhatsApp, email or video call, with listening support, encouragement, and ideas. We can also meet outside if government guidelines permit. Health visitor and midwife referrals will be prioritised but self referrals also accepted.
