Hi
The website is a great source of information, look forward to it ‘growing’. I work in the field of community children and families, preventative / early intervention (FNP).

What a great website. Interesting and informative. I work as a Perinatal Emotional Health clinician in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia, and this website will improve my confidence and understanding of all of the issues. Thank you. Regards, Di.

Hi – this is a wonderful site and we are promoting it widely in Australia. I was wondering if someone could direct me the the appropriate person to seek permission to use one of your photographs (fetus in womb) and reference the site in our publications.
Kind regards,
Nicole

Hello:

Thank you for all you’re doing.
I’m a clinical social worker and play therapist in the USA and thought you might like to know about my proposal, WeBePlay for integrating infant and early childhood mental health care into obstetric and pediatric care, which is available for viewing and comments until January 31 at the following link, http://www.scattergoodfoundation.org/innovideas/webeplay#.UOcl5tUl1js.gmail. I hope that you will find/create a moment to review it and if you find it has merit, to enter a positive comment as doing so will give it a boost for consideration as a finalist. I’d also personally welcome any comments or questions you may have about it.

With appreciation and regard,
