NorPIP is sadly closing as a charity after 10 years. NorPIP and the Flourishing Babies Service is, therefore, unable to accept new referrals for parent-infant psychotherapy at the present time. However, the Family Action and Engage Antenatal elements of the Flourishing Babies Service continue to run as normal, and welcome new referrals. 


If you would like to make a referral to the Flourishing Babies antenatal education programme or perinatal support, please visit our new page here.

Families eligible for Flourishing Babies support means families living in either Northampton (NN1-NN5) or Kettering (NN14-NN16) who would like the following support: 

  • Antenatal Support - A specialist antenatal groupwork support programme offering emotional support during pregnancy – the groups meet weekly for 8 weeks to help you prepare for the birth of your baby. 

  • Perinatal Support - Providing emotional support to families during pregnancy and the first year after birth – our volunteer befrienders are trained to offer emotional support to families. We also offer drop-in support for families.

More Information:

  • We collect the information in this referral form in order to assess what services we may be able to offer you.

  • When we receive a referral form, it is processed and recorded on our online database where it is kept secure and confidential.

  • We delete the information held for you after 30 years, unless you ask us to remove it sooner.
