Hyslop Welcomes Arrival of Baby Box to West Lothian
Local Constituency MSP, Fiona Hyslop has welcomed the roll out of the Baby Box to new mums in West Lothian.
Registration for Scotland’s Baby Box will open on the 15 June 2017 for all babies due on or after 15 August 2017.
“Every single new mum whose baby is born on or after August 15th will be given a baby box, sending the message that every child matters. Regardless of their circumstance, every child should have the best start in life and every parent should be supported during this time.
“The baby box is designed to offer babies a safe place to sleep and provide new mums with useful items to support them as they bond with their baby and I am delighted to welcome its arrival to new parents in West Lothian.
Baby Boxes will start to be delivered from 15 August 2017 for all babies due on or after that date. When the scheme officially opens there will be a large number of Boxes due to be delivered at the same time.
Delivery partners will work to ensure that parents receive their Baby Box as soon as possible.
From January 2018 all parents will receive their Baby Box between weeks 28-32 of pregnancy.
