Best Beginnings

Best Beginnings supports parents in giving their children the best start in life.

Best Beginnings focuses on the period between conception and a child’s third birthday, where the foundations of a healthy and fulfilling life are laid. Best Beginnings offers practical, simple, and interactive tools for parents-to-be and new parents. It aims to support parents' physical, emotional and mental health care and promote training and knowledge about these issues amongst health and social work professionals and the wider public.

Best beginnings offers support for families, such as parents suffering with depression or other mental illness, parents with disabilities and families with children who have a health difficulty or are born premature.

Best Beginnings offer a Baby Buddy app.  Baby Buddy is your personal baby expert who will guide you through your pregnancy and the first six months of your baby’s life. It has been designed to help you give your baby the best start in life and support your health and wellbeing. Baby Buddy has been created with mums, midwives and doctors, so you can be sure that the information is reliable, accurate, and is available 24 hours a day.
