Vision Statement

Precious Beginnings has a vision that our clients will have the skills and knowledge to make the best informed choices for them and the children in their care, through evidence-based, responsive and supportive information and services.

 

Values

Our core vision and values

Precious Beginnings understand having a new baby can be daunting, incredible, terrifying and every other emotion in between.  Our services are designed to equip parents with the essential skills to flourish in this whirlwind experience of bringing new life into an ever changing world.

Whether this be support to understand how to cope and bond with their new tiny human (who comes with no instructions), learning how to feed their baby or giving parents, carers and professionals the skills to keep their child safe and potentially save their life, Precious Beginnings has all the expertise to support their clients at this crucial time.

At Precious Beginnings, we believe the emotional wellbeing of parents, carers and children is just as important as their physical wellbeing.  This area is often overlooked by public sector services due to

funding and resources.  We can help parents enjoy the experience of having a baby with the correct care, support and signposting.

 

Services offered by Precious Beginnings include:

     • Health Visiting  • Baby Massage

     • First Aid    • Breastfeeding Support

     • Sleep Consultation

 

Precious Beginnings is based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.  We are happy to travel within the
West Yorkshire area (and beyond if needed) –

anywhere in the world so don’t be afraid to
