NEW Guides to Pregnancy, Birth and Early Baby Care Launched

DPPI has launched a series of new guides to pregnancy, birth and early baby care for visually impaired parents and the professionals supporting them.

The Having a baby pack aims to help people through the process of becoming a parent and also to assist professionals working with them in understanding how to meet the needs of this group.

There are three guides in the series:

H1. Planning, pregnancy and birth offers a wealth of information and tips for the planning and antenatal stages through to the birth of the baby.

H2. From birth onwards covers the postnatal stages, becoming a parent and caring for a new baby.

H3. Useful resources for parenthood provides information on organisations, resources and equipment which may be helpful when becoming a parent and throughout parenthood.

The guides are available in a choice of formats: print (15pt), large print (18pt), Braille, audio CD and DAISY CD.

The guides, researched by a visually impaired parent, have been developed with input from visually impaired parents and a wide range of health professionals.

It is envisaged that the resources will be used by visually impaired parents and professionals working with them.

For further information contact Gill Lea-Wilson at DPPI

Available to order from DPPI.

Price £6 each or £15 for the set of three.

Free to visually impaired parents.
