Cheshire and Merseyside Baby Box Programme
We are the first Baby Box programme to launch in the North of the UK. Following a successful pilot in Halton, we now provide Baby Boxes to all women in pregnancy across Cheshire and Merseyside.
Baby Boxes are primarily an engagement tool designed to educate and empower all new mothers. Everyone who receives a Baby Box gets access to the Baby Box University – an online health education platform that provides key public health messaging.
You can collect your free baby box from your maternity support worker in the community. This face to face introduction to the initiative aims to prevent social isolation and improve emotional as well as physical wellbeing.
At the first meeting with a midwife, women will be given their card to access the Baby Box University. At around 28 weeks of pregnancy, all women will be invited to collect their Baby Box.
