“Parents can support their baby’s development from the start with Triple P Online for Baby. The program’s online toolkit is full of tips and ideas – what you need to know, as well as topics that can be difficult to discuss, such as uncomfortable emotions and partner conflict.

Markie-Dadds said the Triple P Online for Baby program allows parents to:

  • create the best environment for their baby’s development

  • promote the social and cognitive development of their baby

  • enjoy life as a new parent much more.

Emma McBride, Deputy Minister for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, said: “As Deputy Minister for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, I am proud to support programs like Triple P Online for Baby, which is evidence-based and supports perinatal mental health for new and expecting parents and guardians.

“As we recognize Perinatal Mental Health Week, it’s important for parents and caregivers to know that support is available when and if they need help,” she said.

According to Triple P, Online for Baby has been the subject of many years of research and clinical trials in various countries and the programme, when delivered face-to-face, “has helped parents feel less anxious and depressed, and more confident”.

“Mothers reported improved bonding with their baby; babies were less likely to cry; and babies showed better developmental outcomes for cognitive, motor and language skills.

“The Triple P Online for Baby program allows parents and caregivers to tailor helpful strategies to their needs. With no financial, travel or childcare costs, parents can complete the online modules at their own pace and watch their parenting confidence improve as they progress through the course.

“Positive parenting helps create a healthy, loving home environment that promotes learning and communication. This lays the foundation for positive relationships and mental health throughout a child’s life,” said Markie- Dadds.
