Liverpool University Research – Maternal Mental Health Study

The purpose of the study is to understand more about the relationships between maternal mental health, infant feeding practices and infant sleep patterns.

Liverpool University Research are looking for female volunteers who are aged 18 and over and who are mothers to an infant born at term gestation (37 weeks and over) aged between 6 and 12 months. All participants are required to have knowledge of the English language to a degree where they will be able to understand the written information provided.

Participants will be asked to complete a secure online questionnaire about infant feeding methods and choices. Participants will then be asked some questions about their baby’s sleep patterns. Mothers will then be asked to complete a postpartum specific anxiety questionnaire and a postnatal shame and guilt questionnaire. A few demographic questions will also be asked.

There is the opportunity to enter into a draw for vouchers for an online retailer e.g. Amazon (£25 or equivalent in appropriate currency for non-UK participants).

The whole process should take no-longer than 15 minutes to complete.

New Business Research

I am a qualified childcarer with a BTEC National Diploma in Childhood Studies, a BSc Honours in Psychology and a Masters in Childhood and Youth. I have also completed various additional training courses including on behaviour management, therapeutic crisis intervention, attachment and brain development. Over the last 22 years I have worked as a nanny, maternity nurse, foster carer, mother’s help and support worker. I have supported families with establishing routines, managing behaviour, eating and sleeping habits and developing good parenting skills.

I want to try scope out whether such a service would be something parents would be interested in:
  • If needed, would you consider using a service that would support you as a parent manage your challenges with parenting?
  • If so, what would you want that service to look like? Options could include a nanny in your employ for a block amount of time or more like consultancy where sessions would be carried out at intervals over a time period, eg a week or month.
  • How much would you be willing to pay for that service?

Research for 8 month old babies and their parents

8-months-old babies and their parents are invited to participate in the ‘Empathy Development’ project

At York Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab (University of York), we research how babies’ responses to people’s emotions lay the foundations for empathy development. Empathy and altruistic behaviours are important for harmonious interactions with others and building friendships. In this project, we are interested in finding out how, over the course of 10-months, babies’ abilities to detect and respond to others’ emotions change from simple to more complex forms of social interaction. Learning about how empathy develops in the first years of life, will help us foster the emotional wellbeing of children.

We will collect information about baby’s responses to people’s emotions through research visits at the Lab (University of York) and through questionnaires, at three time points (8-, 12-, and 18-months). The activities in the lab are designed to be safe and engaging for babies.

Parents receive £10 at each time point and babies receive a small gift as a token of our appreciation for their help. We also provide free parking during the research sessions at the lab.

If you have a baby 8-months-old or nearing this age and are interested to take part in the project, please sign-up by filling in the form HERE

The information you provide will be stored securely and will not be shared with anyone outside our team.

Filling in the form does not mean you consent to participate. We will soon get in touch with more details about the project, and then you can decide whether you would like to schedule a research session at a date and time that suits you.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Research for 1 – 5 month old babies and their parents

‘I HEAR YOUR EMOTIONS’ project is looking for participants

Researchers at the York Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab (University of York) are inviting 1- to 5-months-old babies and their parents to participate in the project ‘I hear your emotions’.

Detecting and telling apart the emotions shown by the people around us is a crucial skill for our social lives. Changes in facial or vocal expressivity tell us how people feel and guide how we interact with them. Scientists have also shown that already at birth babies can tell apart different emotional modulations present in the voice. However, we know far less about how these abilities change during the first years of life. Our project focuses on understanding how the baby brain develops to detect and differentiate between different emotions expressed in the voice throughout the first year of life.

Participating in this project involves one visit, lasting approximately one hour, to the University of York. During the research session, your baby will hear voices of other babies or of adults with different emotional intonations (e.g., happy, sad, angry). In order to record how the brain responds to these sounds, your baby will wear a special hat with sensors embedded in it (like the one shown in the picture). The hat is specifically designed for babies and it is comfortable to wear. The sensors are not harmful. They only capture the weak signal coming from the brain, in a similar way to the sensors present in smart watches for recording the heart activity. You will be with your baby at all times.

Parents receive £10 to support the trip to the University of York and babies receive a small gift as a token of our appreciation for their help. We also provide free parking in case you decide to travel by car.

If you have a baby 1- to 5-months-old and are interested to take part in the project, please sign-up by filling in the form HERE.

The information you provide will be stored securely and will not be shared with anyone outside our team.

Filling in the form does not mean you consent to participate. We will soon get in touch with more details about the project, and then you can decide whether you would like to schedule a research session at a date and time that suits you.

Our volunteers are there to offer emotional and practical support in a restorative way working ‘with’ a family.    Volunteers are someone to talk to and who offer support and options when needed.  Practical support might include supporting a family to access a children centre, going to the park, encouraging play or helping after school.  Our volunteers support families once a week for approximately 3 hours a week for as long as the family needs support – typically a year to 18 months.  Volunteering with Home-Start Leeds is flexible and can take place in the daytime, evening or weekend.

All our volunteers attend a 45 hours preparation. We offer preparation courses in the daytime during school hours or in the evening.  Volunteers are supported by one of our highly trained co-ordinators throughout their time volunteering with us.  Co-ordinators offer on-going support to volunteers making sure they receive all the help they need when supporting a family.

Our volunteers are parents or have parenting experience and understand the struggles of having a family.  We offer our own on-going free programme of learning opportunities, the chance to undertake Level 1/2/3 qualifications when funding is available and work experience opportunities.
