We know you understand the importance of early parent-baby relationships. You understand that the opportunities parents and babies have to develop close, loving and responsive bonds with each other has a profound impact on the well-being of children, parents and communities.
Perhaps this is even a passion for you?
But do you also have:
- limited time to ‘get involved’ in the issues you care about?
- limited financial resources to ‘support’ issues that are important to you?
- lots of competing priorities, pulling you in different directions?
We know that a not being able to see real change in the issues important to you can be frustrating and can even lead many people to simply give up on their vision for a better society.
Baby in Mind is a grass-roots charity that is helping people to do this. When we act alone, it is hard not to feel like a lonely voice in a world that does not see the importance of what you see. However, by joining people together, we have been helping people making a difference in the lives of at least 35,000 families each year by sharing skills which help support the most important bonds and relationships of all.
Our Community Supporter Program is for people who want to be a part of this movement. We are ordinary people: medical and health workers, educators, support workers, community workers and every-day mums, dads and grandparents.
And all our community supporters receive a great range of BENEFITS including FREE GIFTS and DISCOUNTS simply for being part of our organisation!!

Here’s what others are saying about this:
Sydney Morning Herald, 21/11/16
…mindfulness training courses are becoming the norm in huge corporations in big cities around the world. Companies are finding it reduces stress and absenteeism, increases productivity, develops better leaders, and generates more creative workplaces. It also enhances cognitive thinking skills and triggers more imaginative solutions.
Richard Feloni, Business Insider, 21/08/2016
Ever since I decided to try out the Headspace [mindfulness program] after hearing about it on Tim Ferriss’ podcast…I’ve been much calmer and more collected in times of stress. I’ve dealt with…anxiety since I was 11 years old, so that’s an accomplishment. Headspace isn’t a hippy-dippy placebo; it’s a straightforward teacher that helps you learn the basics of breathing and visualisation associated with secular meditation.
Dr. Hedy Kober, Neuroscientist, Yale University, TEDx Presenter
[Mindfulness meditation] did to my mind what going to the gym did to my body — it made it both stronger and more flexible. I started meditating to deal with a break up, but found it helped handle stress and unpleasant feelings in all areas of life.
Tom Daley, British Olympian, 26/07/16
I massively recommend Headspace. Lots of the English Institute of Sport guys are actually using it. It’s helped me…mainly focusing on my breathing, being completely in the moment and not getting ahead of myself. Not focusing on things that have been and gone… Every morning I do 10 minutes of mindfulness where I do meditation and I use that in competition and every day life. I’m getting better and better in being able to zone in on what I need to focus on. I started at the beginning of this year and I’ve done it every day since…I feel like that’s one of the reasons why this year I’ve been the most consistent that I’ve been in competition.
Anna Maxted, The Times, 26/07/2016
Admittedly, I had low expectations of Headspace for Kids – a..feature of the adult program used by 7.5 million people, including Emma Watson and Gwyneth Paltrow. Not me, though. We’re not that kind of family: we’re sporty and rarely sit still. Meditation isn’t part of our vocabulary.
Yet my boys do feel anxious from time-to-time and my attempts to relax them often fail. So, I reason, we might as well give this wafty self-help business a go. I’m astonished at their enthused response. We inhale and exhale, scanning our bodies and considering how tense each part feels. During the first bite-sized breathing exercise, Conrad fidgets but afterwards declares he’s ‘floppy and relaxed.’ Conrad prefers meditating outside, ‘so when you breathe in, you get fresh air.’
…its other positive effects are instant: one calm session invites kids to consider what mood they’re in, and access their feelings. Caspar tearfully details his concern about a classmate who he thinks is lonely. We agree to invite her over.
…Meanwhile, the sleep sessions are a revelation. As we lie on the kids’ carpet, listening to him exhorting us to relax our legs, feet, toes… my sons fall uncharacteristically silent. Conrad yawns, ‘I can’t move.’ Caspar murmurs, ‘It’s like my bones have been glued.’ Minutes later he’s asleep. The following day, Caspar scrawls in my notebook: ‘It makes you forget everything bad you’re thinking about, and relaxes everyone.’
I realise we’ve stumbled upon a life-changing habit. Forget Pokemon Go – Headspace is the app your kids really need you to download this summer.
