First Time Parent Groups

First Time Parents Groups

Parent groups are offered to all 1st time parents in Victoria through the Maternal and Child Health Service which is funded by state and local governments.

Parents who join a group attend a series of sessions that emphasize parenting skills, relationship development and social support in order to increase confidence and skills in parenting.

Parents benefit from participating in these groups in a number of ways:

- developing social networks
- gaining self-confidence
- through access to relevant information on child health and parenting

Each group runs for 6 weeks focusing on the following topics:

• Sleep and settling
• Health and wellbeing
• Baby Massage
• Introduction to solids
• Baby illness
• Play, development and early literacy
