Expectant mums and dads in South Essex Get help in South Essex Why a Pregnancy Pal? Can we be friends and stay in touch? We aim to help you to make friends with other parents in your local area. We can do this by putting you in touch with local parents and introducing you to groups and activities that are going on locally. Your Pregnancy Pal can then move on to supporting another family. Pregnancy Pals aren’t ‘friends’ on social media, like Facebook and they don’t give out their personal contact details. Visit our events page for upcoming social events being organised, where you may have the opportunity to meet up with your Pregnancy Pal again.
