Becoming a parent is an exciting and challenging time and Karitane have been the leaders in parenting services since 1923. We provide support and education on the unique challenges of parenting to mums and dads with children from birth to 5 years of age. All our services are evidence based and delivered by a caring and highly trained professional team of child and family health nurses, paediatricians, social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists offering complete holistic care.
Karitane support new parents around sleep and settling, establishing routines, feeding and nutrition, toddler behaviour and pre and postnatal anxiety and depression. We are a registered charity, supported by the NSW Ministry of Health and the Department Community & Justice. In addition to our government funding, much of our work is thanks to donations from individuals and organisations.
