Baby hubs

All four baby hubs run concurrently throughout the Borough. The sessions are led either by the Health Visiting service (HV) or Children’s Centre team (CC).

What is a baby hub?

A baby hub is a place for:

  • Babies to play,
  • Weighing your baby,
  • Parents to meet other parents / carers,
  • Parents or carers to learn about topics specific to your child’s needs and development,
  • No need to book, just turn up!

There are four baby hubs in Lewisham which run the same time table each week.

  • Ladywell children’s centre, Monday 1pm–3pm
  • Waldron Health Centre, Wednesday 1pm–2.45pm
  • Bellingham children’s centre, Thursday 9.30am–11.30am
