The following pages include details resources to help Anglophone parents in the Basel area. They are not personal recommendations, but come from suggestions made from other parents and from professional bodies.
This is an ever growing list so please do help us build it. If there are other details you would like to have included please just let me know so I may add them in. If you have recommendations, please do share them also. Thank you.
At the end of this section are handouts from the prenatal courses which may be useful as a library of information. This section is growing slowly - let me know if there are any topics you want urgently and I will prioritise them!
