Due to COVID-19, we have temporarily suspended this service. When stage 3 restrictions are lifted, we will release session dates. In the meantime, please send us an inquiry so we can place you on our waiting list.
We have partnered with Resus My Bub and PANDA to deliver a session tailored for new and expecting parents. Our half day session will provide you with training in First Aid and CPR for babies and provide some insights into the early days of parenting, where to access great resources and how to seek support when it’s needed.
If you need immediate support, please call the PANDA national helpline on 1300 726 306.

Emotional wellbeing for parents, presented by PANDA
All parents go through a period of change as they adjust to the changes that a baby can bring, even before the birth. But for the one in five women and one in ten men who will experience anxiety or depression during this time, things can get really tough. If you or your partner are struggling with your emotional wellbeing or mental health when expecting a baby or in the first year of baby’s life, it’s important to get help early. Early treatment increases the chance of a fast recovery. Our seminars will help you to recognise the signs of perinatal anxiety or depression in women, men and families, and give you great resources and information about where to go for support.
Children under 12 months are welcome.
If you require childcare to attend this session please speak to the Centre for U staff, call 1800 270 875.
