A child is born and a family is created or forever changed. All the information you gathered during your pregnancy as you planned for the birth is no longer needed as you focus on the next part of your journey. Don't panic. Billions have done this before and there is lots of assistance available. Your family, friends, neighbours and healthcare team are here to help; together we can work our way through the maze!
Links to specific information in the form of leaflets, brochures or videos I have placed below. Websites with broad information I have on the right.
Good information is available from sites such as raising children, pregnancy, birth & baby, parentline, possums, RCH (Melbourne) and Triple P (yes, their programs start from birth!)
