Young Mothers Antenatal Group (YMAG)

Who we are and what we do

We're the Young Mothers Anetnatal Group (YMAG) – Aphra, Sandra, Chelone and Negar. We are a team of midwives who help support teenage and young mothers during their pregnancies. We understand adolescent parents face many challenges and aim to provide the following support:

  • Continuity of care from booking to discharge two weeks after giving birth
  • Two year one-to-one parenting programme with the local Family Nurse Partnership
  • Parenting classes, including 'Young Mums To Be' and 'Parents for Prospects'
  • Education and exercise classes including yoga and healthy lunches
  • Access to obstetric consultants for women with high risk pregnancies
  • Advice and assistance for young women with particular social or psychological needs
