Operating from our centre at 188 Pleasance, the Pregnancy and Parents Centre is a friendly and welcoming not-for-profit organisation that works with parents-to-be and families in Edinburgh. We offer practical and emotional support to enable all expectant parents, parents and their families to experience pregnancy, birth and parenthood with confidence. Everyone is welcome, whatever your circumstances, background, sexual orientation, family makeup or beliefs. Many of our services are free and our sessions are run on a donation basis or a sliding scale of fees so we never turn anyone away due to financial constraint. We also strive to make sure our classes are accessible to parents and parents-to-be with particular needs. We provide a variety of sessions, workshops and drop-in groups, plus a range of other services and resources.


We aim to enable parents-to-be and new parents to have access to education, information, practical resources and support during this important time in families’ lives


People make the best choices for themselves and their families when they have balanced and comprehensive information, non-judgemental support and confidence in themselves. We respect parents’ different circumstances and choices around birth, and create a sense of community during the transition from pregnancy to parenthood. We believe this contributes to positive mental health and wellbeing.

While pregnant, the PPC gave me relaxation, access to valuable information and confidence for a positive birth experience. Adjusting to a new way of life as a mother is demanding in so many ways. The welcoming environment offered by the PPC provides the ongoing support that is vital to successful parenting.
