About our Early Parenting Centre

The Mitcham Early Parenting Centre (formerly known as the Mother Baby Unit) was established in 1994 to provide specialised support and care to families experiencing postnatal difficulties in the weeks and months following the arrival of a new baby, up to twelve months of age.

These difficulties may include:

  • Feeding difficulties
  • Infant sleeping problems
  • Unsettled / irritable infants
  • Reflux and colic
  • Adjusting to parenthood

Although located in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, our newly refurbished unit provides services to families from all parts of Victoria. We offer individual support and planning to suit your family over a 5-night residential stay, during which time there is opportunity for education, rest, support and group discussions.

The unit features 6 luxurious private suites, all with comfortable double beds and access to modern dining and lounge area. Our Early Parenting Centre is also able to provide overnight accommodation for partners (at an additional cost).

Following discharge we will support you with telephone contact as required.
