Show organiser Keeley Chambers - who is also a Midwifery Advocate - said the free event is always very well received by pregnant families from across North Northamptonshire.

She said: “The idea is that the road show offers new and updated information, all in one place, about every aspect of preparing to have a baby and caring for a newborn infant.

“Service users will be able to find out about water births, home and hospital births, and what groups are available to support them in their pregnancy and after their baby has been born.
