Baby Safe Program

By Dr Rosemarie Boland

Baby Safe Program

Taking your newborn baby home is an incredibly exciting time, but many parents feel daunted by the responsibility that comes with caring for a baby.

We developed the Baby Safe Program to provide parents and grandparents with the latest evidence-based guidance on safe sleeping, recognising signs of serious illness in young babies, knowing when and where to seek professional help and how to provide essential first aid in an emergency in the first year of your baby’s life.

The Baby Safe Program has been designed to cover the essentials of baby safety, without being too overwhelming or too technical.

All programs are run by Dr Rosemarie Boland, Director of Precious Care Australia.

Baby Safe Program: Overview

The Baby Safe Program comprises three modules (classes). Each module can be attended face-to-face in a small group class, or online in a virtual class, or via self-directed e-learning. The three modules are:

  1. Safe Sleeping to reduce the risk of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI), including SIDS
  2. Recognising and responding to an unwell baby
  3. Baby Basic Life Support

You can attend all three, or any combination of the three modules. There is also the option to purchase the Baby Safe Program Video Series and e-learning modules.

We also have classes and e-learning modules especially designed for parents whose babies are currently in the Special Care Nursery.
