Every new stage brings its new struggles: infancy, vaccination, teething, child care, school and other developmental milestones require good support, sensible advice and effective treatment approaches. Whatever challenge you are facing, whatever stage of parenting you are up to, our practitioners are here to provide all you need to feel informed, supported, energetic and vital so your family can all be the best they can be.

For Parents

The difficulty of caring for a new baby often lies not so much in taking care of yourchild, but taking care of yourself. And yet your baby relies entirely on you, so your health is fundamental. This joyous time can also be physically, mentally and emotionally exhausting, as you adjust to the many changes having a new baby brings. The key to getting through the first weeks and months is to find support wherever you can.

All of our Practitioners are experienced in supporting new mothers, fathers, other carers and their family at this important time. We provide a range of natural medicine approaches to nourish and sustain you and can guide you to the most appropriate service for your need. We can also help you with emerging problems or difficulties you may experience including:

Following birth, counselling can support early adjustment or any grief from unmet expectations, or simply fulfill the need to understand your experience.

Where appropriate, you can also be referred to a number of other resources, linking you into other networks, resources and communities for further support, information or contacts.
