OBS is here to help!

We are delighted to be running four weekly in person sessions. Spaces are limited and pre-booking is essential. Read more on our in person support page. We have also made booking virtual 1:1 consultations (Zoom or phone) easier! 

Virtual Zoom Group continues monthly and focusses on our popular topic discussions. Virtual antenatal breastfeeding education sessions continue monthly as well. If you are a student or visiting health professional see the page about observations for the latest news about what and where you can book with us. 

Summer Closure

To give our team a well-deserved break we will be closed from the evening of Friday Saturday, July 29th to the morning of Monday, August 15th, including our Facebook group. While we're closed please contact your midwife or health visitor and see our Recommended Resources for Parents. Bookings for in person sessions, virtual 1:1 consultations, OBS Group and our antenatal education sessions will be open as normal, but you may need to check back closer to our reopening for slots to become available.
