Noni Hazlehurst, AM, on the work of Baby in Mind

By | Blog, Member News | One Comment

Noni Hazlehurst, AM, is known to almost every Australian, and is loved by just as many. Children’s charity, Baby in Mind, is honoured to have Noni support our work.

For 24 years (in a 43 year career that is still going), along with a host of critically acclaimed film and TV roles, Noni came in to our lounge rooms almost every day as presenter of the ground-breaking children’s program Playschool. She taught us how to solve problems and transform the ordinary by sticking scraps together with a bit of masking tape. She sang to us, read to us, engaged us in play and – most of all – made us feel that we were OK just the way we were. She let us know we were important, that what we did, what we made and what we said mattered.

Baby in Mind offer nationally accredited training in cue-based infant massage and parent-infant relationship education.

This training qualifies you to deliver the First Touch Program: which helps parents build confidence in recognising their baby’s cues. At the same time, you’ll provide parents with skills to respond sensitively to these cues using baby massage, other forms of healthy touch, movement, voice and eye contact.

This is the only government-accredited infant massage training program available in the world.

Her hospital records showed she had multiple bruises, cigarette burns, and a fracture in her wrist that had not been treated. She was also severely underweight and malnourished. Read More

We Can’t Show You This Photo of an Abused Baby

(This article talks about child abuse and neglect, and contains video that may be upsetting)

Our organisation, Baby in Mind, is dedicated to promoting and supporting the bond between parents and babies. Although this bonding is ‘natural’, it doesn’t always come easily to many parents and for many families. It is normal for parents to grapple with feelings of uncertainty and doubt, and for love to take time. We support all parents in bonding with their babies.

But for some parents we work with, the bonding process is completely derailed.  Our educators who work in neonatal intensive care, drug recovery centres, psychiatric units, and child abuse services do some of the most harrowing work in the world: supporting parents (or foster parents) to help their babies love and trust again.
