A PILOT scheme to offer free vitamins to women who are pregnant or have newborn children has been launched.

The ‘Healthy Start Scheme’ run by Southampton City Council’s public health team will help women get vital vitamins and keep themselves and their babies healthy.

If you are pregnant or have a baby under 12 months you can speak to a midwife, health visitor or Sure Start Centre about Healthy Start vitamins or visit healthystart.nhs.uk.
