Supporting your child to grow

Your child is developing every day, so from conception onwards it lays the foundation for their future development.

You can find out more about their development by downloading the ANYA app, an easy-to-use app for parenting and breastfeeding support.

For a useful guide to help you have a healthy pregnancy, visit Pregnancy – Start for Life.

You can also find out more about your child’s development by downloading the Best Beginnings Baby Buddy app.

Support your child to learn and grow

From fairly early on in pregnancy, your baby starts to hear sounds from inside the womb. You, your partner and family members can talk, sing and read to your baby to help them to get to know the sound of your voice. Learn more about your child’s language development.
