Empowering parents and families of babies born preterm or sick to deal with emergencies with confidence.


Baby Safe Program by Dr Rosemarie Boland at Precious Care Australia

Having a baby born preterm requiring specialised care after birth is an emotional and challenging experience.  Preparing to take your baby home from the newborn intensive or special care nursery is an incredibly exciting time, but many parents also feel anxious about caring for their baby by themselves for the first time, without the nurses and doctors there to answer their questions.

Recognising signs of serious illness and knowing when and where to seek help is essential knowledge for all parents and caregivers.

Would you know what to do in an emergency?

Precious Care 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 a baby emergency.

"We can provide you with the knowledge and skills to deal with an emergency in the first year of your baby’s life with confidence.  Our programs are designed to cover the essentials of baby safety, without being too overwhelming or too technical."

- Dr Rosemarie Boland, Director, Precious Care
