Centre for Family Research


The Centre for Family Research are hosting 3 events at the Cambridge Festival:

We Are Family April 3rd, 6-7pm

Set Up for Life Monday 29th March, 6.30-7.45pm

As part of this event, Professor Claire Hughes will describe how a parent’s emotional state can play a role in outcomes for the baby; this link with postnatal wellbeing is equally strong if the father had a ‘difficult birth’ emotionally. Register here.
