You know when as new parents you sometimes just don’t know what to do next. Your baby or toddler isn’t sleeping or feeding well, there’s no rhythm or routine to the day and you’re both exhausted and feeling out of control. And you have limited family support.
As specialist Early Parenting Nurses, we take your feedback into account to help us make a clinical assessment to find the cause of your baby or toddler’s issues. We will then advise and show you how to implement suitable changes within the framework of a practical “plan” that will work best for both parent and child. The timeframes for seeing improvement and desired changes will differ according to each child’s temperament, current situation and the parent’s caregiving style and goals.
You can choose from a home consultation with one of our Registered Mothercraft Nurses/Midwives or if you don’t need hands on support, you can choose from a range of phone consultation packages with our Founder and Director Beth, booked at a mutually suitable time when baby or your toddler is asleep and you can concentrate.
Or if you would prefer to pay only for the time needed you can book a video consultation with Beth through Sage.fm, links on our website pages.
There are also Gift Certificates or eBooks for your expectant family or friends, a most practical and thoughtful way to support new parents.
Home consultation packages include:
- Home visit timed to best suit your needs
- Follow up by the nurse for up to 3 days post visit
- Mothercraft for Babies Care Plan completed by your nurse
- Mothercraft for Babies fridge magnet (with all our contact details) for easy referral to your Care Plan
- Priority referral to our trusted team of Specialists and health professionals if further assessment required.
Phone or Video consultations can be purchased to suit the level of support you need, either as a one off session or as a package. You can book a Phone or Video consultation online through our website or call our Office.
