Northamptonshire has become the first county to sign up to a new initiative aimed at giving children the best possible start in life.
It's called the 1001 Critical Days Manifesto which says the first two years from conception are critical for a child's development.
The project will link up midwives, health visitors, doctors and children's centres in Northamptonshire along with parents.

A Norfolk hospital will be the first in the country to offer an ultrasound scan, to help spot breech babies before they are born.
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital currently delivers 6,000 babies a year and more than 150 full term breech babies. It has now been given funding for 25 hand held scanners. It will mean safer births for women who don't know if their baby is in a head down position.
“We will be scanning all the women arriving during labour and those who come in for induction.
When we discover a breech early on it means a woman can speak to an obstetrician and discuss options in relation to their individual needs.
Some of them can go on to give birth normally and others may decide to have a caesarean.”
Babies normally position themselves ready for birth around 33 weeks. If they haven’t turned by labour, then the birth can be more difficult and more distressing for the baby.
