Child Health Nurse
Private Child Health Nurses
Our experienced Child Health Nurses provide a variety of appointments to suit you and your family. On Wednesdays between 11am-12noon and Fridays between 1pm-2pm there is a FREE Drop In Clinic where you can weigh your baby and "Ask us Anything".
If you would like something more personal and private we offer 30 minute or 60 minute appointments in our centre for you to ask any questions or concerns about your new baby. Our Child Health Nurses can also complete the scheduled purple book health checks. Additionally, we can arrange for you to have a specialised home visit in the comfort of your home. Our friendly nurses have a variety of skills and interests in child and maternal health, in particular sleep assistance, settling, feeding and counselling.
We encourage a responsive parenting approach to assisting baby's to settle to sleep. We provide parents with the knowledge and support to understand how baby's sleep, how to interpret their individual needs and sensitive ways to settle them off to sleep. It takes time and a kind nurturing approach for a baby to become an independent settler. Sleep issues cannot be fixed overnight. Our sleep assistance service is provided during the day Monday to Friday. If you would like to know more please don't hesitate to contact us.
We now run regular workshops for parents to learn more about baby sleep patterns. Look at our workshop calendar for more information.
