Edith Banfield Jackson was born in 1895. A graduate of Vassar College (B.A. 1916) and John Hopkins University (M.D. 1921), Jackson held various teaching positions at the Yale University School of Medicine from 1924 to 1929. After a brief hiatus in which she underwent training and analysis with Sigmund Freud, she returned to Yale in 1936 as professor in pediatrics and psychiatry and remained until her retirement in 1959. A child psychiatrist and pioneer in family-centered maternity and infant care and parent-infant bonding, she is best known for her work on the Yale Rooming-In Research Project. She developed the rooming-in plan to allow parents to have an increased role in the care of their newborn children within hospitals. From 1946 to 1952 Jackson directed the experimental rooming-in unit at the Grace-New Haven Community Hospital. The project served as the model for a new obstetrical unit at Yale-New Haven Hospital and stimulated change in the institutionalized care of mothers and infants.

Pediatrician and child psychiatrist (Vassar, 1916; Johns Hopkins University, M.D., 1921), Jackson studied at the Vienna Psychoanalytic Institute, where she was psychoanalyzed by Freud, helped Anna Freud and Dorothy Burlingham establish an experimental all-day nursery school, and aided Austrian-Jewish refugees. She taught pediatrics and psychiatry at Yale Medical School and the University of Colorado and helped establish and directed a rooming-in unit, where a newborn child stayed with its mother, at the Grace-New Haven Community Hospital and then at Colorado General Hospital.
