E2A shares eight insights garnered from our experience designing and implementing programming for First-Time Parents (FTPs), highlighting the most important lessons learned across our projects. Each insight provides background on the issues involved, including the specific challenges or opportunities that are unique to FTPs and key points to consider when designing and implementing FTP programs. We also share examples from E2A projects that highlight the importance of each insight in shaping effective FTP programs. Watch the accompanying video.
