The Program

The Early Parenting Centre inpatient program is an intensive 5-night program delivered at Mitcham Private Hospital. To be eligible for the program, your baby must be between the age of 6 weeks and 12 months, not be actively walking and needs to be immunised.

On arrival, a General Practitioner will admit you to the unit and will be available throughout your stay for consultation. Treatment commences with a thorough assessment of your baby’s health including development and behaviour. This will assist in informing the program which will be comprised of one-on-one and group sessions, practical demonstrations and family group discussions.

The Early Parenting Centre is staffed by Registered Nurses, Midwives, Mothercraft Nurses and Enrolled Nurses. During your stay, staff are available to review your progress and provide support throughout the program, offering compassionate, hands-on help as required. If required you will also have access to a multidisciplinary team including lactation consultants, paediatricians, psychologists and psychiatrists.
