Building the Evidence Base

For Baby’s Sake is an evidence-based

response to domestic abuse, trauma and what babies need during the first 1001 days from conception to age two. 


We were grateful to draw on a wide range of evidence to inform our design of For Baby’s Sake.  


We are committed to contributing to the growing evidence base about domestic abuse, the impact of childhood adversity and the hopeful science of how those who have suffered trauma in silence can build their resilience.

Developing Practical Tools

We are generating valuable learning about working with whole families – mothers, fathers, babies and children - with transferrable lessons beyond For Baby’s Sake


One way we share this is through creating practical tools ourselves and helping other organisations to do so.


We’ve been delighted with the feedback about our Parental Relationships Spectrum, which helps professionals to distinguish between healthy, conflictual and abusive relationships.

Joining our Voice with Others

At local, national and international levels, we are playing our part alongside others who are making the case for breaking intergenerational cycles of trauma and adversity – which is what is needed, in order to change life chances and make a radical difference to social mobility. 


We focus on the priorities: ending domestic abuse, improving mental health of babies, children and adults, nurturing attuned parent-infant relationships, healing from trauma and building resilience.
