The program has grown out of the work of the Parent–Infant Research Institute (PIRI), a not-for-profi t organisation dedicated to improving the emotional well-being of parents and infants. Towards Parenthood has been extensively piloted with Australian families. Focus groups have been conducted and the program revised to incorporate their feedback. Overall, parents who were involved in the program told us they both enjoyed and gained from it. beyondblue: the national depression initiative has been instrumental in supporting the development and evaluation of this program by funding a pilot study and a more substantial randomised controlled trial of this intervention in Victoria, Australia. The results indicate Towards Parenthood is able to provide helpful information to make a difference to the positive adjustment of pregnant women and their partners.
