Book a basket

Baby's Basket works with healthcare and welfare agencies and encourages them to offer baskets to parents and carers who would benefit and to make a request on their behalf.

If you are pregnant or the parent or carer of a newborn baby and need help yourself please click here.

To book a basket

If you are a healthcare or welfare professional you can make a referral for a basket as soon as the need is known - even months ahead. In urgent cases we can provide a basket at short notice including weekends and public holidays. The service is free and confidential and there are no formalities.

Please phone or email us with the following information:

  • your name, mobile phone number and/or email
  • your service or organisation and an office phone number in case of difficulty
  • the first name or initials of the recipient of the basket
  • and if the basket is for a pregnant mum, the due date and sex of her baby (if known) so we can select appropriate clothing.


We aim to have a basket ready 2 months before the baby is due. To protect a recipient's privacy we ask that you collect the basket and deliver to them. We can be flexible about collection times, including evenings and weekends. In cases of urgent need we may be able to deliver a basket to a surgery or centre in the Lincoln area.
