Research highlight

Secure parent-infant relationships are a crucial factor in ensuring good mental and physical wellbeing throughout life. The Parent-Infant Foundation recently published this report, which includes a summary of qualitative and quantitative research conducted with parents, focusing on the parent-infant relationship.

Here are some of the key research findings, but do follow this link to read the full report (page 25-29 for the parent research).

  1. Parents ranked the parent-infant relationship as the third most important influence on child development, below the impact of domestic violence and parental drug use.

  2. 50% of parents thought there was not enough support available for developing the parent-infant relationship.

  3. The fear of judgement and stigma are barriers to parents seeking support with their parent-infant relationship.
