How you can help a new parent

Your friend has just had a baby! Here’s some ideas of how you can help:

  • Drop off a homemade meal
  • Take them some snacks
  • Offer to watch their baby whilst they have a shower
  • Offer to come over and do some cleaning
  • When visiting, take snacks and put the kettle on yourself, so they don’t have to host you.
  • If they have other children, offer to mind them for a few hours or take them to the playground to give your friend a break
  • Ask them how they’re feeling and listen openly without giving advice
  • Don’t overstay your welcome – understand when they need their space back!
  • Let them know they’re doing an amazing job!
