Infant Mental Health Awareness
The Infant Mental Health Awareness week has already passed (June 14-20, in the UK and Australia) but we at Mother's Heart would like to add our voice in underscoring the importance of babies' emotional well-being and development.
To highlight the event, we are sharing this article by our partner, Children in Families. It is an interview about Mother's Heart 's work, and describes how we work together to educate and equip mothers and caretakers on their important role in babies' brain development, and to ensure that babies have the best chance at building attachment and mental health.
"It’s a partnership that marries their expertise of caring for mothers and infants with ours of having solid, loving homes open to babies, with social workers to help monitor bonding and attachment." To read more, please click this link.
