“We have over 14 organisations attending the event, who will be able to provide information about breastfeeding, mum’s fitness, birth choices, having a doula, emotional wellbeing and complementary therapies.”

Chantelle Henderson, marketing coordinator at the Waterside, said: “I am delighted to welcome the Lincolnshire Birthing Network to the Centre on Saturday.

“The network offers a free and valuable resource to the local community, so we are looking forward to supporting them in the Centre.”
