Embedding the Brazelton Approach into Newborn-Related Services
How to embed the baby’s voice and support of the parent-infant relationship in your newborn care service using the Brazelton approach.
About this Event

We are thrilled to invite you to our first Information and Inspiration Webinar ! We have designed this event for those in managerial and leadership positions in any kind of newborn and parent/family service, to learn about the Brazelton Approach (the NBO and NBAS*) and how it can be embedded into care provision and pathways in:

  • Neonatal Care
  • Health Visiting
  • Perinatal Mental Health
  • Local authority and voluntary groups/services (including Dad groups)

*The Newborn Behavioural Observations and the Neonatal Behavioural Assessment Scale

Who is this event aimed at?

This event is aimed at those in management, leadership and commissioning positions within newborn-related care services. It would also be of interest for anyone with a passion to improve care services and pathways for newborn babies and their families.

The event in 20 words:

From inspirational real-life examples learn how to embed the baby's voice and support of the parent-infant relationship into your newborn-related service with transformative results.

Why are we running this event?<h4>
Because we believe that:</h4>
  • The opportunity to learn about baby communication should be available to every new parent.
  • Understanding newborn behaviour is foundational knowledge for all practitioners working with newborns.
  • Support of the parent-infant relationship through sharing the baby's language should be an integral and embedded part of all newborn-related care services.


Is it well documented that the quality of the primary caregiver relationship in the Early Years is the bedrock for healthy social and emotional development. With this in mind the support given to new parents and caregivers, should be top of the agenda for all of us providing services to families.

Practitioners have the best opportunity as those in contact with families to give their support to the developing relationship. We believe this should not be seen as an add-on for those lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. Every family should receive this support immersed into the service they are receiving. This requires skilled practitioners and robust care pathways.

The most effective, inclusive and impactful way to do this is to ensure whole teams/organisations/workforces are both trained in the Newborn Behavioural Observations AND implementing it into care provision.

The Brazelton approach provides a strategy that is easily implemented to meet this goal.


We are delighted that the following services and organisations will be showcasing their implementation of the Brazelton approach for this event.

  • Manchester Health Visiting Service
  • Dad Matters
  • Essex Perinatal Mental Health Service
  • Camden Family and Childrens Service (Camden Council) and Camden Health Visiting Service
  • Starlight Neonatal Unit, Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust

By attending this event, all attendees can expect to:

  • Enjoy a brief introduction to the Brazelton approach and learn what is involved in the training and certification from our Director.
  • Hear from fellow managers and leaders in the field about how they have embedded the NBO and NBAS into care provision to bring transformative benefits for parents, babies and practitioners.
  • Gather information about logistics- such as funding, care pathways, mentoring and meeting targets.
  • Have the opportunity to ask your questions.
  • Access post-event support to get plans in place for your organisation.

We look forward to welcoming you along to this inspiring and informative event!!
