This is currently the only parish midwives project in the country. The project is focused on encouraging breastfeeding, nurture and family bonding. It works through St John’s Angell Town and the church school and is involved in connecting with local inter-faith women groups.

The project will now integrate mental health support for mothers who suffer from mild post-natal depression and for mothers and carers who have mild mental health problems and will organise a sign posting system for those with higher mental health needs. This has been made possible by a Partners for Health grant provided by The Saturday Hospital Fund and London Catalyst. If you would like to learn more about the project and/or volunteer, please contact Angie Sheridan, the Parish Midwife at [email protected]
