The Birth & Baby Family Centre

where parents can come for chat, tea, cake, support, reassurance & information…

The Birth & Baby Family Centre is based in the East End Youth Community Centre in North Shields. It is a great venue – with plenty of space for toddlers to run of some energy, room for mums and babies, a sensory den, a therapy room and a kitchen area for tea and cake.
