A Facebook page has been launched dedicated to new parents across Airedale.

Behind the initiative is the Bradford and Airedale Child Health Information team.

Team member Rebecca Munden said: “Becoming a parent can be a daunting experience with so much to think about, from what to buy and sleeping routines through to baby’s health and immunisations.

“Our new page will provide expert information about a wide variety of topics related to child health issues. We hope it will be an invaluable resource for local parents.”

Invites to join the group will be given to parents during their first appointment with their health visitor, but anyone interested can also visit facebook.com/bradfordandairedalechildhealth.
