Pre-birth – Safeguarding unborn babies
Somerset Pre-Birth Planning Toolkit
This toolkit has been produced by the safeguarding partnership to support practitioners working with pregnant women and their families, and is used in conjunction with the South West Child Protection Procedures Pre-birth Protocol to inform safeguarding decision making.
Somerset Pre-Birth Workbook
The Somerset Safeguarding Children Partnership has produced an online modular resource in collaboration with practitioners from across the partnership, to help support practitioners across Somerset who are working with new parents in the pre-birth period.
Modules are intended to be undertaken collaboratively with families, with the primary goal of helping parents to understand how to care for their new-born baby and to develop their parenting skills so that they are able to keep their baby safe.
ICON is here to help prevent abusive head trauma and is an evidence-based programme consisting of a series of brief ‘touchpoint’ interventions that reinforce the simple message making up the ICON acronym.
