Friends of The Baby Journey

Here are our local friends who offer great products and services for pregnancy and beyond. Enjoy!

Cheltenham Rocks

Our guides include regular what’s on round-ups of things to do in Cheltenham with families plus relevant news and offers for Cheltenham families. You can search for places to go for a specific age group or location.

You’ll also find articles from local parents who have written about their favourite things to do with the kids in Cheltenham, and reviewed some of Cheltenham’s well-known (and less well-known!) activities.

Maternity Services at Gloucestershire Hospitals

Check out the local NHS Trust Maternity services web page to view virtual tours, find contact numbers, how to find the different locations, read a whole catalogue of patient information leaflets and lots lots more!

The Lullaby Trust

The Lullaby Trust provides emotional support for bereaved families, promotes expert advice on safer baby sleep and raises awareness of sudden infant death.

Our safer sleep advice gives simple steps for how you can sleep your baby to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) which is commonly known as cot death. It can give you the peace of mind to enjoy this special time.

Our advice is based on strong scientific evidence and should be followed for all sleep periods, not just at night.

Gloucestershire Breastfeeding Support Network (GBSN)

The Gloucestershire Breastfeeding Supporters’ Network (GBSN) is a charity “owned” and run by peer supporters.  We provide information, encouragement and support to families at any stage of their breastfeeding journey, from pregnancy through any challenges, to weaning from the breast and beyond.  Every week we run seven groups across the county.  There is a qualified breastfeeding counsellor at every group, as well as plenty of tea and cake and toys for the little ones.  Our groups are very social and there are always plenty of other mums around to talk to about your parenting experiences.
