Operating from our centre at 188 Pleasance, the Pregnancy and Parents Centre is a friendly and welcoming not-for-profit organisation that works with parents-to-be and families in Edinburgh. We offer practical and emotional support to enable all expectant parents, parents and their families to experience pregnancy, birth and parenthood with confidence. Everyone is welcome, whatever your circumstances, background, sexual orientation, family makeup or beliefs. Many of our services are free and our sessions are run on a donation basis or a sliding scale of fees so we never turn anyone away due to financial constraint. We also strive to make sure our classes are accessible to parents and parents-to-be with particular needs. We provide a variety of sessions, workshops and drop-in groups plus a range of other services and resources.
From May 2021 we are generally open for enquiries from 9.30am – 3.30pm Monday – Thursday unless our small office team are working remotely.
