New website design for Fedant

New website design for Fedant

Although Fedant had an established website they decided it was in need of a redesign to bring it up to today’s standards. The website had grown over the years, which is pretty normal, but the additional pages and features had led to a complicated website which proved difficult to navigate and lacked focus.

Fedant is a voluntary regulatory body which ensures antenatal councillors meet minimum requirements; meaning soon to be parents can be confident in the choices they make.

Barry and Sam from Fedant explained which user groups their website had to appeal to, what information was relevant to those groups, and the software systems they used in the day to day running of the organisation.

Fedant’s old website before the re-design

The new website had to integrate with a couple of other systems; a membership and renewal database (amember) and a bespoke database of approved practitioners. The design was kept as simple as possible, with the focus on getting users to their relevant areas quickly. As part of the redesign we also agreed on some new ways to simplify and streamline the application process.

As Fedant were keen to be able to keep the website updated themselves we chose WordPress to handle the majority of the content – and Sam and Barry have got to grips with editing and updating their website very quickly.


We’ve since updated this website, read more about the updated version here.

When looking for a web design company that suited the highly complex needs of our site redesign, GDS Web Design was the choice. From the first meeting with the web designer from GDS Web Designs we knew they could handle the complexity of what needed to be done in updating a very old website to a modern day site. Our thoughts were listened to, suggestions given and investigation into areas that had not previously been done in this country. The designs we had in our heads were bought out in a lot more detail than we could have hoped for. Integration of other software and security were uppermost in GDS plans, which is a very important factor in our field. Timings given were realistic and acted upon; out of office hours if necessary and meetings were an option if needed. GDS went the extra mile to produce more than was expected. We would have no hesitation in recommending GDS Web Design to any business with usual or unusual website requirements.
