– an independent RESEARCH PROGRAMME which addresses potential missing links in mainstream studies of pregnancy, birth and new parenthood experiences in partnership with RESEARCH ASSOCIATES and organisations from all over the world;

– a pioneering EDUCATION PROGRAMME consisting of study modules and workshops that utilise powerful works of art by its ASSOCIATE ARTISTS to encourage (future) doctors, other professionals and new parents to contemplate their role and responsibility in the outcome of pregnancy, birth and new parenthood experiences and the potential intergenerational consequences of their decisions.

In addition, DIEP is building the first INTERNATIONAL NETWORK in the world that brings together ACADEMICS, RESEARCHERS, OBSTETRICIANS, GYNAECOLOGISTS, MIDWIVES, DOULAS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, ARTISTS, JOURNALISTS and any other professionals whose work has a direct impact on new parents or parents-to-be. This GLOBAL NETWORK will make any relevant news, work, research, art and thoughts on 21st century early parenthood experiences accessible to anyone who shares DIEP‘s mission to improve 21st century early parenthood experiences.
