OXPIP (The Oxford Parent Infant Project)

My Baby and Me

From conception to 2 years, a baby’s brain grows at a phenomenal rate and interactions with adults are key to healthy development. OXPIP will provide parent-infant therapy during this formative period. This will prevent many future problems through improving emotional resilience for whole families.

Situation

Our earliest relationships with caregivers affect our physical, emotional, and social development. If carers are struggling with their own emotional well-being, or are overwhelmed by stress, it is difficult for them to provide the sensitive and nurturing relationship needed for their baby’s emotional development. Research shows that poor early attachment can impact negatively on educational attainment, capacity to engage in society and to develop positive relationships, with related social costs

Solution

The presence of good quality, caring early relationships is critical to later social functioning. OXPIP parent-infant psychotherapy, a form of early intervention, considers the emotional health of the infant as well as that of the parent, to improve the quality of the relationship. The ante-natal and early years are a powerful window of opportunity, when most new parents really want to understand their babies, so OXPIP's specialist interventions can bring about transformational change.

  • OXPIP has given me a safe space to discuss my baby, which was really needed as I had no-one else I could talk to.

  • I was really happy with OXPIP and have recommended it to friends and family. I felt really comfortable, did not feel judged, just supported.

  • I completely underestimated how much life would change having a baby, having these sessions has given me the space to come to terms with these changes in a non-judgemental and safe environment. I have found my sessions so helpful in understanding and processing my overwhelming thoughts and emotions.
