Research shows that poor maternal mental health and low income during babyhood affect children's outcomes negatively and are factors in the creation of future generations of "Troubled Families". Early intervention services to improve children's life chances must therefore mean intervening before at-risk babies are born, and in the first year of life; providing both services which support vulnerable mothers emotionally and with parenting; and providing adequate welfare support.
