Post-natal support services

Helping you with sleeping, settling and breastfeeding your newborn

Imagine what the third trimester of pregnancy would be like for a baby: tightly cocooned in a warm, dark, comforting place.

Now imagine being thrust into a world of hunger pains, strange smells, hot and cold... it's quite a shock!

A newborn isn’t born being able to fend for themselves and still has much developing to do – they can’t escape if they sense danger or fear, go and find mum or dad for a cuddle, or chase mum for a feed when they're hungry… they completely rely on us for every single need.

A gentle adjustment into their new world in the form of a fourth trimester can make a huge difference to how baby feels and how mum and dad cope with parenthood.

A newborn isn't easy. Here's how we can help...

Newborn Care

We can offer you a registered midwife who specialises in caring for families in the postnatal period. We understand how challenging the fourth trimester can be and can give you expert advice on newborn development and behaviour, specifically sleep, settling techniques, bathing, baby massage and daily care.

With a focus on emotional wellbeing and self-care for the whole family, we are available for a minimum of 3 hours per session to gently guide and support you through the fourth trimester.

Whether it's expert advice you're after or simply a well deserved break, we are uniquely qualified to help you.

We met Pip when our baby girl, Luiza was 5 weeks, shortly after I was diagnosed with post-natal depression.

With my mum not able to come to Australia due to COVID, I had no family support to help me and my husband with our first child.

Pip came held my hand and listened to me with love and no judgement, just like my mum would have. She shared her tips and wisdom and week by week, I became more confident as a mother.

Today Luiza is almost 6 months and I can't let Pip go! I trust her with my eyes closed and I know she cares for Luiza as if  she were her own daughter.

I could not recommend a better person.
