" L ook At You, Aroha Atu, Aroha Mai” is an initiative of Counties Manukau District Health Board.

It is the first of a series of DVDs showing the ways in which babies are social and communicate right from birth. The DVD is aimed at helping parents, whaanau and professionals understand and respond to the social and emotional needs of babies, in the first three months of life.  

The DVD is given to every family/whaanau who delivers a newborn baby in Counties Manukau via the Lead Maternity Carers (LMCs).  It is also available free of charge for any organisations who hold a contract with the Counties Manukau District Health Board for delivering services to families with young children.
