Tubes of Life

Tubes of Life is a new programme on behalf of Public Health and Safe at Home and is unique to Luton.

Our aim to support parents-to-be from conception and new parents in the early months following the birth of the your baby to ensure that you have the right information to make your OWN CHOICES about you and your baby.

Health professional including midwifery, health visiting and children’s centres also support the key messages from the programme and are there to offer guidance if and when needed.


Tubes of Life is about how your baby receives OXYGEN through your umbilical cord (Tube of Life) whilst pregnant and then through their own airway once born (Tube of Life).

We call these the Tubes of Life as they deliver the life giving OXYGEN that your baby needs for healthy growth and brain development.

What Luton Practitioners are learning:

Health Professionals based in Luton including midwifery, health visitors and children’s centres are learning the importance of Tubes of Life and how to share these simple but life-changing and life-saving key messages with pregnant and new parents through attending evidence based training as featured in this Practitioner training video supported by Public Health Luton.

Did you know?

Certain scenarios can affect/deplete/take away OXYGEN from getting to your baby.


“I didn’t know that my new-born baby only breathes through her nose, but now that I am aware I can ensure that nothing covers her little nose”

“Really informative information that helped me as a pregnant parent understand how to keep my precious baby safe”

“Loved the tube, great visual demonstration to show how my baby would receive less oxygen and how that would affect the brain”

“We had no idea that formula milk had more calories than breast milk”

“ I already knew about the health benefits of breast feeding but I am more aware of how important breast milk is and why babies need feeding little and often in the early months and how this protects against SIDS”

“Wow what a shock to learn that sleeping in car seat and bouncing chair for prolonged periods can affect my baby’s brain, I shall definitely lay my baby flat to sleep”
