For the past 7+ years, the Alliance for the Advancement of Infant Mental Health has chosen a week in October and dedicated it to celebrating babies and the professionals who work with and/or on behalf of babies. During this year’s Celebrating Babies week - 10/21-25, the Rhode Island Association for Infant Mental Health (RIAIMH) honors all of our members for the incredible work you do supporting and advocating on behalf of pregnant women, infants, young children, and their families.
The work you do is so important - because babies can’t wait! #celebratebabies2019
