Current national and international research highlights the need to rethink how services can best help parents and their children.

It has become Increasingly clear that the mental health and emotional well-being of parents needs to be prioritised, rather than simply focusing on the physical aspects of pregnancy and birth; the technical skills of parenting or tackling children's behaviour problems.

At Facing Parenthood the emotional well-being of parents-to-be, mothers, fathers and couples is our priority.
