Week of October 8 – 12, 2018 Celebrate Babies! in the US
In October 8-12, altogether 29 Infant Mental Health associations will unify to keep the baby in mind. Gather your IMH association members, colleagues and co-workers & host an event -big or small!
For the past 6+ years, a week in October has been chosen and dedicated to celebrating babies and the professionals who work with and/or on behalf of babies. We encourage every IMH association that is part of the IMH to plan their own Celebrate Babies! event.
You deserve to take time out of our usual, busy schedules and celebrate the incredible work you do, supporting and advocating for pregnant women, infants, young children and their families. With our collaborated efforts, we are certain we will make a huge impression on the behalf of babies!
