Mothercraft for Babies

Mothercraft for Babies has earned its enviable reputation as a specialist Early Parenting and Baby Sleep Consultancy by understanding that becoming a parent is a huge adjustment for the whole family.  Our Nursing qualifications, experience and knowledge will help you overcome any problematic sleep, feeding, routine management or toddler behavioural issues from newborns to three year olds.

Our Registered Mothercraft Nurses and Maternity RN’s are Sydney based and will come to your home for a one on one consultation with you and your partner/family. Or together we may decide that a Phone/Video consult package is more suitable support as a “first step” and your Consultant would be Beth Barclay, our Founder and Director.

Every family and parenting style is different so there is no “one size fits all” in our approach.  Your nurse consultant will ensure you have the knowledge, support and tools to move forward plus a detailed Care Plan and follow up support.

Becoming a parent is like someone teaching you how to drive a car and then on the big day,
revealing you’ll actually be flying a plane.

Emotional well being for expectant and new mums

"Being a mother is one of the most rewarding jobs on earth and also one of the most challenging.  It is sometimes difficult to reconcile the fantasy of what you thought motherhood would be like with reality. Take care of yourself."    Debra…

After the birth of my daughter, we had a whole year of cosleeping with my 3yo son as we were all sleep deprived and on survival mode. He didn’t cope well with her arrival. I didn’t know how to help him sleep on his own again. We had tried to let him cry it out, and felt like we were really torturing him. As a working mum, it’s hard to set day time routines and even get him into bed at a decent time. I felt hopeless but found Beth and took a chance. I was skeptical at first as I felt like we had already tried a lot of things. We had a couple of phone call conversations and she really listened to the things I had to say and made me feel at ease even when I had very simple/silly questions to ask. It wasn’t an overnight miracle but surely and steadily we’ve made a lot of progress with my sons sleep. Some of the advice she gave me seemed like common sense but it was her keeping me accountable and setting some boundaries that I couldn’t do on my own. I wish I had the courage to ask for help and contacted Beth sooner. Thank you again! It’s really made the whole family happier.

I wish I had done this sooner! my 14 month old had been waking every 1-2 hours throughout the night for months and I had reached my sleep deprived limit. Beth gave me advice about how to make some changes to my daughter’s diet, daytime routine and night time rituals and within 4 days we were seeing huge improvements. we are now down to 2 short night wake ups with a plan on how to get my daughter to settle on her own during these wake ups. the phone consultation package was a very convenient way for me to get help as I am working full time and I’m so grateful for the coaching and support I received from Beth. Thank you!

“Beth and her team of angels are absolutely amazing at what they do. I was suffering with my 4 month old who was not sleeping more than 40min during the day, waking up 5 times a night and devastatingly not eating. My nurse Jackie who at home we nicknamed Mary Poppins was so understanding and empathetic. She showed me so many little techniques to help my little boy. Literally the day after my boy slept 12hrs only waking up once! I literally can go on and on at how amazing my experience was. Highly highly recommended worth every cent.”

As someone who has made use of Mothercraft for Babies no less than four times over the past year or so, I could not recommend them enough! They have always been prompt to respond and Beth herself provides practical direction with a great, no nonsense but supportive approach. She also goes above and beyond to follow through with your case. I have also had Nurse Sonia come out to help twice and it has been an absolute life saver. Sonia has a beautiful calm approach and I have been awe struck with her magic sleep touch! More importantly, the settling techniques she showed me completely changed the sleep game for me and my baby and set us up on a self soothing path which I would have been lost without. Could not recommend highly enough, worth every cent!

Beth has been a huge support over the past year with my son’s health issues and I could not recommend her highly enough. She provided much needed helped with sleep and settling issues when we couldn’t see straight from sleep deprivation. Always sensible, always kind and oh so patient. She makes sure the whole family is considered when providing support and you never feel left alone.

When we confronted medical issues and needed referral options, Beth went above and beyond to ensure we got the help we needed. She truly cares and provides a service I haven’t come across before.
