NEWPIP supports babies and their parents from conception to 2 years, who are experiencing difficulties which may affect the quality of their relationship. 

Our specialist Parent Infant service is underpinned by Psychodynamic Parent Infant Psychotherapy and the Solihull Approach.

Looking after a baby can feel challenging and at times stressful. If parents are experiencing additional difficulties it might​ be hard to cope. NEWPIP can:

  • Support parents' relationships with their baby​ 
  • Enable parents to explore​ their worries about their baby​ 
  • Think together with parents about how past experiences​ might be affecting them now​ 
  • Provide parents with information on child development​ 
  • Help parents see the world through their baby's eyes
  • Support parents with any other issues​ affecting them and their baby
