What is the baby café?
“It’s somewhere that parents can come to take a breath. They can have a cup of tea and some food and put their child in a safe environment where they can play – it’s just like having people round to your house.”
What inspired you to start the café?
“When I gave birth to my daughter, I was in quite a low mood. One day when I was out with her, I walked past a community hall and a lady came out – she had a big smile and said ‘Come in, bring baby’.”
“From that moment, my daughter was taken from my arms and I was made a cup of tea and given some food, and I just felt really loved and got to meet some incredible women.”
“We needed something very similar on this estate.”
