About this event

On 15th September, 2021, this fully virtual conference will bring together leading academics and practitioners in perinatal mental health and the early years, for a forward-looking half-day conference centred on supporting the wellbeing of new parents.

The conference marks the end of the Surrey Perinatal Impact Partnership, a one-year ESRC funded partnership between the University of Surrey, the Institute of Health Visiting (iHV) and National Childbirth Trust (NCT). Led by Dr Ranjana Das and Dr Paul Hodkinson, the project has pooled together academic research and professional expertise to enhance support for the wellbeing of new parents through development of resources and engagement with a range of perinatal practitioners.

The event includes a showcase of the work completed during the project, complete with reflections from those involved, while also bringing together a range experts to provide a broader examination of research, evidence and professional experience on the wellbeing of new parents.
