Baby Steps Program Background Matched

Parenting Preparation Program:

Having your first baby and not quite sure what to expect? You are not alone! Many parents feel like they don’t know all they will need to know to undertake the exciting and sometimes overwhelming task of parenting and caring for a new baby.

Relationship dynamics change and develop. A tiny person is now around demanding of your attention and hoping you know what they need. Our parenting preparation course covers the following topics and helps to ready you for your parenting journey ahead:DL Flyer Baby Steps webpage
