OUR STORY

Supporting parents and infants

since 2012

Established in 2012, Nourish Baby helps parents enjoy a healthy pregnancy, positive labour and birth and early parenting success.

Our online antenatal classes, early parenting courses and sleep and settling phone consultations, are delivered by qualified antenatal and early parenting professionals, who are deeply passionate about supporting you and your family through pregnancy, birth and the first 3 years of your child's life.

We are the only online antenatal classes accredited by the Childbirth and Parenting Educators of Australia and the Australian Council of Healthcare Standards. We are also recommended by COPE: Centre of Perinatal Excellence.

We believe

Pregnancy and parenthood is one of the most exciting journeys you’ll ever take.

Infancy and early childhood, is a critical time for the development of emotional, physical and mental health.

There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to parenthood.

In supporting you with the knowledge and tools you need, to plan your own unique birth experience and approach to early parenting.

In helping you build nurturing and strong relationships with your baby or toddler.

Antenatal and early parenting education should be fun and exciting!

It's important to have a good sense of humour. And a good supply of patience.
