Parenting can be hard - especially during the early years. We all need help sometimes, but not everyone has a support network they can turn to on difficult days.
That’s where Bluebell comes in. We offer a hot cuppa, a listening ear and a range of tips and tools to help parents manage their perinatal mental health.
Our HQ Bluebell Place is a haven in the bustling heart of Bristol. Parents and carers come along to meet others in small, welcoming groups and join in with exercise classes, music sessions, coffee mornings and much more.
If parents want time to themselves at Bluebell Place, our Early Years team is on hand to care for their babies. The team can also share information and guidance around big parenting challenges like feeding and sleeping. This help can be life-changing for the whole family. Like everything at Bluebell Place, our creche is offered to parents for free.
Bluebell’s support for parents goes far beyond Bluebell Place. We also run an 11-week group programme called Comfort Zone, which is hosted by children’s centres across Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Bath and South Devon.
Parents looking for one-to-one help are matched to our Bluebell Buddies. And at our Dads in Mind meet-ups, new fathers can share stories and get support.
