Many parents will have attended childbirth education classes during pregnancy to help prepare for the birth, however parents also have much to learn after the baby arrives. Imagining in advance how life will change with the arrival of a new baby is difficult, so WWWT provides relevant information at the time parents need it most - when their baby is in their arms.
What Were We Thinking! (WWWT) aims to fill two gaps in current parenting education:
- strategies to manage baby crying and settling difficulties and promotion of sustainable sleeping habits from an early age
- new language and ideas to help parents adjust to the changes in their relationship with each other after the birth of their first baby.
The program content is from research evidence, clinical experience and wide consultation with new parents, maternal child and family health nurses, clinical and health psychologists, general practitioners, paediatricians, lactation consultants and parenting educators.
