Baby Makes 3
Mum, dad and baby attend a two hour evening session, once a week for three weeks. The program is led by a male and female facilitator, Baby Makes 3 gives mums and dads the opportunity to share their experiences and hear from others who are going through the same journey. For many Dads this is their first occasion to meet with other first time parents using a group work approach.
Baby Makes 3 is delivered as part of the new parents groups run by maternal and child health services for first-time parents. Experience has shown that this is a great way to engage new parents in a relaxing and informal setting. The Baby makes 3 program covers the following topics:
- 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
