Parenting programmes for improving mother-child interaction and maternal mental health
Mothers who are vulnerable to mental health difficulties in pregnancy may find it more difficult to interact with their babies. This may have long-term consequences for them and their baby. We are currently involved in a study with the Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in Glasgow to find out how helpful two different parenting interventions, Enhanced Triple P for Baby and Mellow Bumps, are in improving mother-child interaction and maternal mental health and the cost effectiveness of these two different types of support.
