Helping new parents prepare for the transition to parenthood

Baby Triple P

Are you a parent expecting your first child?

Baby Triple P is designed to support parents during the transition to first-time parenthood. Baby Triple P aims to give babies a healthy start in life by enhancing their parent’s knowledge, skills and confidence in early parenting practices. In addition, it intends to protect the mental and emotional well being of men and women as they become parents.

Baby Triple P is a program that offers practical ideas and ongoing support to help parents deal with the everyday situations that can often stress parents of newborns. The program involves four 2-hour parent group sessions (delivered over four consecutive weeks). Groups are run at the University of Queensland at the Parenting and Family Support Centre, and other locations in the Brisbane area.

Starting in 2013, this program will be offered free-of-charge to parents expecting their first baby and are between weeks 20 and 35 weeks pregnant, and in a couple relationship, in exchange for research participation.

Interested parents can get involved by going to https://exp.psy.uq.edu.au/baby/ or by contacting Mandy Mihelic at baby-triplep@uq.edu.au
