Becoming a parent is an incredible experience. Research which has tracked the development of infants, children, teenagers and adults suggests that getting a good start in life matters.


The modules cover:


  • Module 1: Minding the Family and Baby during Pregnancy
  • Module 2: Developing a Parenting Identity and Style
  • Module 3: Labour, Birth and Establishing Feeding
  • Module 4: Early Days at Home
  • Module 5: Early Developmental Milestones
  • Module 6: Adjusting to Family Life up to 6 Months After Birth

Designed by the EPT Clinic, Minding a Baby’s Mind Prenatal Programme aims to help parents become the best kind of parent that they can be, drawing upon scientific, evidence-based research from paediatricians, psychologists, doctors, midwives and other developmental specialists. The research and information in the programme references widely recognised best practice guidelines, including those issued by the World Health Organisation on antenatal care for a positive pregnancy experience, childbirth, postpartum and newborn care. An overarching Infant Mental Health framework is used throughout. This research consistently explains that there are certain things that we can do to encourage positive development of the baby and parent during pregnancy, and thereafter. This research has also tracked the development of babies through to adulthood with findings consistently showing that getting a good start in life matters, and that the supports which we receive in our first few years of life lasts a lifetime!
