The First 12 Months - Fathers and Babies Term 1

The starting date for this event has passed. Some events are ongoing, check the dates and information below to see if you can still attend.
For many new fathers parenthood can be overwhelming and confusing, so to address this I will be running 3 sessions for new fathers and male carers with babies aged 12 months and under. The workshops will focus on supporting and developing positive parenting skills and self-confidence to build a strong physical and emotional relationship with their babies, and to enhance their involvement within the parenting role.

The topics covered are:
• Getting to know your baby
• Feeding, sleeping and settling
• Positive impacts of fathers on the child’s development
• Mental health
• Practical parenting

This project will utilise trained and experienced guest speakers and culturally diverse facilitators to enhance engagement and participation of fathers and male carers from non-English speaking backgrounds.
Cost: None
