Best Beginnings is a charity that was founded in 2006 by our CEO Alison Baum and achieved charitable status in 2007. Best Beginnings Vision and Mission are to be a catalyst for changes by the development of innovative resources for parents and professionals to help reduce the inequalities in child health across the UK from pre conception through to a child’s 3rd Birthday. The way we function is by reaching out to Health Care Professional and families through a media approach and this includes using Facebook, Twitter as well as the more traditional email and WebPages and the use of film telling the “story” from a parents perspective..

There are a number of major projects that have been initiated and are ongoing as well new projects that are in the process of being launched:

  • • From Bump to Breastfeeding 2008
  • • Small Wonders DVD 2012
  • • Baby Express 2014

New projects
  • • Maternal Mental Health Project
  • • Bump Buddy App aimed at the under 25’s and available free of charge on iPhone or Smartphone ( due to be launched in November 2014)

The presentation is an overview of all of the work that is being continued and undertaken by the team at Best Beginnings with background data to support the work that we are performing here in the UK.
