Welcome to Ready Steady Baby!
This website is designed to be a comprehensive online resource for you and your
partner from the decision to start trying for a baby, through pregnancy, labour
and birth up until your baby is 12 months old.
Ready Steady Baby! helps you get ready for parenthood by taking you through the
whole of your pregnancy from the early symptoms, through the antenatal care you
will receive and on to advice on how to get through labour and the birth. It provides
a rough guide on maternity leave and benefits and can help you with the care of
your baby for the first 12 months.
*The term partner includes dads, your partner, civil partners, husband or other
primary care givers who all have a very important role to play in the care and upbringing
of your baby.
