Tameside and Glossop Early Attachment Service

The service works parents during pregnancy, and with parents and their babies and young children up until their fifth birthday.

What is this service about?

The Early Attachment Service (EAS) promotes the importance of the first relationship a baby/child has with his/her parents.

Who do we see?

Parents who need support in building their relationship with their baby or young child.

Lots of things can affect how you feel about your baby and yourself. Having a baby or young child can be difficult at the best of times.  Sometimes, it can feel hard to cope with a baby’s feeding, sleeping or crying. Sometimes problems like depression in pregnancy, or after birth, a traumatic birth, mental health problems, events from the past or happening now, can affect how you feel about your baby, and you may feel worried about some of the feelings you have.  All these problems can affect anyone.

EAS is there to provide extra support to parents and their babies and young children so that your relationship is a strong foundation for your future lives.

Where do we work?

We try to find a setting where you and your baby/child feel comfortable. This could be your home, a Children’s Centre, Health Clinic or a Children’s Social Care centre.

What do we offer?

We will try to offer you an appointment within 2 weeks of the referral being made. You’ll have a number of appointments with one of the clinicians, to talk through your problems and concerns, and we’ll work out together what sort of help will be most appropriate for you and your baby/child.
