Our Pregnancy, Baby and Beyond Clinic offers the following services to all women, regardless of where they delivered their baby (no GP referral required):
Perinatal mental health
Our perinatal mental health midwife is available to support you and your family with specialist mental health care during pregnancy and the fourth trimester.
We know that events surrounding a baby’s birth may be confusing, unexpected and not necessarily what you had hoped for.
The birth reflection appointment aims to give you a chance to explore your birth experience with our dedicated birth reflections midwife.
We have an experienced team of lactation consultants who can provide tailored breastfeeding support for you and your baby up until your baby is 12 months of age.
This service is also available for women during pregnancy to prepare individualised plans based on your unique needs.
To access these services, please book an appointment with the Pregnancy, Baby and Beyond Clinic by calling 08 9370 9793 (no GP referral is required).
