Who we are

Our national award winning service supports parents to build secure attachments and loving bonds with their babies, whilst breaking negative life cycles.
 
We provide easy to access community based therapeutic interventions and support, for pregnant women, new parents and their partners, who are struggling with their emotional wellbeing and/or adjusting to their new born baby.   
 
By offering attachment-based therapeutic support in the antenatal/postnatal period, we are able to help parents 'separate out' all of the difficulties that get in the way and impact on the parent-infant bond and relationship.
 
We are a friendly team of clinical psychologists, midwives and volunteers who are passionate and committed to supporting parents and infants in the Knowsley community.
 
We aim to support parents to manage their mental health, emotional wellbeing and build happy, secure and loving relationships with their babies. Sessions are offered to families either in the family home or Knowsley Children’s Centre.

Our service is for parents and carers in Knowsley who are pregnant or have a new born baby aged 0-3 months, who are struggling with their emotional wellbeing and/or struggling in their relationship with their baby. 

We work in partnership with Liverpool Women’s Hospital and St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospital. We work closely with other health colleagues and care professionals to ensure families in Knowsley are fully supported. 

You can be referred to the service via your midwife, health visitor or GP. Most referrals are made via public health midwives.
