Supporting you to support parents in the critical 1000 days

The IJBPE focuses on education and support for parents in the context of the critical 1000 days, covering pre-conception, pregnancy, labour, birth, perinatal mental health, infant feeding, early child development and parenting programmes.

Pregnancy and the first years of parenting are ‘a teachable moment’ when mothers and fathers are exceptionally open to making changes in their lives. Our readership comprises professional and lay people who want to make a difference to children’s lives by using their knowledge and skills to educate and support mothers and fathers as they make the transition to parenthood.

The Journal demonstrates how research can be applied in practice and every issue supports CDP via a reflective activity to engage readers more closely with the content of the articles.

We offer:

  • Articles from leading academics making the world explaining the current state of knowledge in the very early years
  • Articles presenting best practice in caring for families maiking the transition to parenthood
  • Challenging editorials from policy makers and key thinkers
  • Brief summaries of the latest research
  • Articles describing the work of third sector organisations caring for parents and children
  • Extracts from the latest books for practitioners and parents
  • Reflective tools
  • Teaching activities for use with parent groups

The Agony and the Ecstasy: Reframing birth narratives to humanise birth

The stories we tell, which are shaped by the stories we consume, help to create life’s sense of unity and of meaning (Miller, 2000) and we rarely question that meaning unless prompted to do so.
