Parenting Support

The transition to parenthood is often a difficult one.

New parents may struggle with:

  • a baby’s feeding and sleeping issues
  • uncertainty and anxiety about taking responsibility for a baby’s needs
  • lack of sleep
  • decreased income and/or a sudden role change
  • isolation
  • relationship stresses
  • physical issues (and sometimes trauma) from pregnancy and birth
  • hormonal changes
  • mood changes
Camcare Support for New Parents

How We Help

The transition to becoming a mother can bring vulnerability to her sense of self and wellbeing. Having support and a safe place to discuss issues can help her successfully ride the rollercoaster into parenthood.

Camcare provides a targeted Parenting Support Outreach Program to give support and assistance to new mothers and their families who are struggling with the impacts of parenthood. Our outreach workers will provide practical parenting support, including links to services such as sleep schools, psychologists and parenting groups.

How to Access Parenting Support

Mothers/parents can be referred to Camcare by their Boroondara Maternal and Child Health Nurse.

This program is run in partnership with the City of Boroondara’s Maternal and Child Health (MCH) program and is available to provide support to families in the early stages of parenthood.
