Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Mothercraft Nurse?
A Registered Mothercraft Nurse has intensive post natal training and qualifications from Tresillian or Karitane ( NSW) in the care of both parent/s and child, from newborns through to preschoolers.
As experienced child and maternal health professionals, our aim is to guide and advise parents with customised support and tailored solutions around infant or toddler sleep, feeding (breast, bottle and diet), routines and toddler behavioural management.
Why choose a Mothercraft nurse instead of a “baby whisperer” or sleep consultant?
Do your nurses use Control Crying or Cry It Out methods for sleep support?
Are your Nurses suitably insured whilst in my home?
Yes all our nurses are employed by Mothercraft for Babies and remunerated under the current Nurses Award. This means they are insured with Professional Indemnity and Public Liability and Workers compensation.
What if my baby sleeps or behaves perfectly during the home consultation?
With the depth of our experience, we expect that your baby or toddler will demonstrate any challenges you have both been facing during our shortest visit which is three hours. Even when you would swear that they know when we are arriving!
What is your cancellation/refund policy?
Our cancellation policy is included in our Terms of Service on our website and also included with your invoice email when you have booked with us. When appropriate there can be a discretionary refund (minus the cancellation fee) outside the usual Terms and under certain circumstances beyond your control. This is decided by Beth Barclay our Founder and Director.
Your website says that Mothercraft for Babies is “trusted by Paediatricians”, what does that mean?
