This is Reading’s first ‘Mental Health Starts in the Womb’ conference, focusing on how we can all work together to improve emotional wellbeing for every family, from the beginnings of pregnancy.
The conference aims to raise awareness among professionals working with parents, and parents themselves, of the importance of foetal development in the 9 months of pregnancy, and infant development in the first few years of life. We want to promote family friendly policies and practice around pregnancy, birth and first two years of life, for the wellbeing of all.
We have five expert speakers, including George Hoskings OBE, Professor Jane Barlow and Professor Vivette Glover. Workshops will take place in the afternoon. See the conference website for more information.
Ticket prices: statutory & private sectors £70, voluntary sector £50, individuals £40.
