Mother and baby placement

Louisa represented a young and vulnerable mother and was able to persuade the other parties and the court that a mother/baby placement should be tried rather than the baby being removed from the mother’s care.

Louisa’s client was allowed a 12-week assessment of her parenting capacity whilst benefitting from the advice of an experienced foster mother. The client did very well in this placement and the assessment moved into the community with the mother and baby remaining together.
