Compassion for Parents and Babies

Compassion for Parents and Babies


The Compassion for Parents and Babies Well-being scheme aims to make locations in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven, including cafes, museums and libraries, a place where every parent feels welcome to go to with their baby.

Many women feel nervous about going out in public with their babies and may choose not to, leading to social isolation and impacting negatively on their emotional wellbeing.  Perinatal mental health affects up to 20 per cent of women during pregnancy and in their first year after giving birth.

By signing up to the scheme businesses and organisations can help show they welcome and support new parents by displaying an easily recognisable Compassion for Parents and Babies Well-being sticker.  Organisations will also share information with their staff and volunteers about why taking part is important to support parent-infant wellbeing.
