What is it like being a Pregnancy Pal? Expand You get a great feeling of satisfaction from making a difference to a family at such an important time. "Being a Pregnancy Pal is amazing, giving something back to the community and making a difference to a family is so rewarding." It’s also great to get to know other volunteers and enjoy the informal social events we organise over the year. You gain new skills and knowledge and may even learn something new about yourself along the way. Our Pregnancy Pals often say that the experience has given them more confidence and for some it is the first step towards employment or further education.
