Baby Makes 3

How does becoming a parent change one’s life? How can families work together to make the transition to parenthood?

Baby Makes 3 helps you build your knowledge and skills to adjust to the changes in your lifestyle and new responsibilities as you become new parents. All types of families are welcome!

How does it work?

Parents and baby attend a two-hour session, once a week for three weeks. New parents share their experiences and challenges and also hear from others in a relaxing and informal setting. For many, especially parents who remain in the workforce, this is the first time they get to meet other new families in a group setting.

What do we talk about?

  • The transition to parenthood
  • Expectations of parents and carers
  • Who does what? The role of gender in parenting
  • Healthy relationships
  • Meaningful equality
  • Sex and intimacy
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Communication

Who runs the program?

Baby Makes 3 is run by maternal and child health services as part of new parents’ group programs. It is led by female and male facilitators trained by Carrington Health.
