COVID-19: proof of vaccination status may be required before appointments are confirmed.
As I am often working with vulnerable babies, I need all the facts to make appropriate choices.
Thankyou for your understanding.
Home visits: With current commitments, wait time is about a week. We can do a Facetime or Zoom chat prior if it’s appropriate (this is a case by case thing; it’s not alwas useful, so it’s not something I regularly offer (or therefore charge for) unless I feel it will be of positive use to both of us.
Postnatal overnight care: is currently unavailable until March. If you’re in dire need in the meantime, please get in touch and I will refer you to a colleague if possible.
Mummy mentoring: The home visit based mentoring project is partially on hold due to time constraints. (One of the reasons for this is detailed below.) For more information on this, please do reach out. I offer both casual and scheduled support to families who are going through perinatal anxiety and/or depression, parents without support, and any carer who is struggling. During the initial home visit we will structure a flexible plan that meets your needs.
Live-in bookings: Unfortunately, due to my own current family and work commitments, live-in bookings are not currently available.
Grandparent refresher bookings: see home visits
PARENTS AND BUBS DROP-IN SESSIONS
I am facilitating a series of free drop-in sessions for parents and carers of new and young babies at the Brentwood Park Neighbourhood House in Berwick, in Southeast Melbourne. I’m really excited about this, as it’s a great way for me to reach (and mentor) a larger group of Mums and carers. Each session will be on a Thursday from 10am-2pm. Come for a cuppa, pick my brain, meet other parents with bubs. Brentwood Park neighbourhood house is at 21a Bemersyde Drive, Berwick
