Maternal and Child Health Services provide a lifeline to first time mothers and fathers, supporting them when they first return home with their newborn baby and throughout the steep learning curve as they adapt to their new family unit. This lifeline is an invaluable service that we are so lucky to have.

The simple line drawings of this work by Dennis, combines the imagery of babies, mothers breastfeeding, fathers playing with children and associated objects, to represent this bond.
