ABOUT GOOD ENOUGH START

The foundation of your baby's social and emotional wellbeing begins during pregnancy and continues throughout your baby’s first 1001 days of life. Amazingly, it is the special parent-infant relationship, or parent-infant bond, that you build together which is crucial to your baby's developing mind.


​This remarkable bond, also known as attachment, creates new brain connections. These connections enable your baby to become social and emotionally resilient throughout life. It's important that you feel emotionally prepared to nurture your baby psychologically to enable the relationship to form.

Good Enough Start's core purpose is to empower all parents to create a secure parent-infant relationship. Specialist trained Practitioners will provide support in the community for all. 

Our Values:    Infant-focused   *   Relationship-based   *   Collaborative   *   Ambitious​
