On Thursday 30 March 2017 Leeds Beckett facilitated our third Baby Week meeting of the year at the City Campus. We welcomed the Baby Champion Aryton and mum Leila to the meeting.
Among professionals were Judith Shalkowski and Liz Ranson from ChildsSide. They discussed possible training session opportunities in children's centres during baby week, and the great work they do to support grandparents.
We also talked to Shelley King from City of Sanctuary about their positive work currently undergoing with families of Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Leeds. Also, to find a way to fit their creative approaches such as; a photo exhibition into Baby Week and help promote their services to a wider audience.
Lead midwife on the maternity strategy Sarah Bennett helped move forward progress with guest speakers in perinatal mental health. And Lynn Farr representing Infant Mental Health services also offered suggestions in making the two day conference (Tuesday and the Wednesday) an exciting event.
