The Infants' Home Postnatal Program
Our postnatal service, Sydney Hope Family Cottage, provides a comprehensive range of postnatal support services for families of children birth to 5 years. Provided via face-to-face home visits and/or phone consultations. Families who are finding adjusting to the role of new parent challenging can self-refer to our postnatal service. Families may also be referred by an early childhood health nurse, GP or other health practitioner. Our postnatal care services include: support with lactation, feeding, sleep and settling, parental wellbeing, adjusting to parenthood, development and attachment and connecting families to local services and community. A home or telehealth visit with a Child and Family Health Nurse is usually arranged after an initial telephone intake consultation. We usually allocate 2.5 to 3 hours per visit.
