Do you have a parenting question about your 0 – 5 year old child? When you call Karitane Careline a friendly and experienced Child and Family Health Nurse will support you with guidance and encouragement on your parenting journey.
Virtual Breastfeeding Clinic
Karitane Lactation Consultants, Midwives and Child and Family Health Nurses provide breastfeeding support using online consultations and quality resources through the HelpMe Feed app. Breastfeeding is learnt over the first weeks and months of your child’s life. It is a unique and special experience for families as no two mothers or babies are the same.
Karitane Parenting Centres empower families by providing parenting education, support and guidance in a relaxed environment for families with children from newborn to 5 years.
A unique child and family hub designed in partnership with Sonder and Uniting to support parents aged 25 and under who are pregnant or have a child living in South West Sydney.
Virtual Home Visits
A NEW service providing you with support and education from the comfort of your home. Using a computer or smartphone you now can access 2 hour individual consultations with a Karitane child and family health nurse for parenting challenges such as; sleeping and settling, feeding, toddler behaviour, adjustment to parenting and postnatal depression and anxiety.
Covering both the South Western and South Eastern suburbs of Sydney, Karitane provides a comprehensive range of clinically based parenting group programs designed to support parents in their parenting role.
Our residential stays offer a 3 and 4 night inpatient service to families in NSW experiencing significant parenting challenges. Unique to Karitane Carramar, we cater to children 0-4 years of age and support families in a holistic approach with facilities to accommodate families with two or more children and where your partner is encouraged to stay or visit as frequently as possible.
We are excited to announce our specialised toddler clinic is now offering Parent Child Interaction Therapy to families across NSW using video based teleconferencing.
Our team of Registered Nurses, Clinical Psychologists and Social Workers work with families using a model called Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). PCIT is based on play and aims to increase positive behaviours and reduce the negative behaviours of your toddler by strengthening the parent-child relationship and giving you some strategies to better manage your child.
Mental Health Services
Are you, or someone you know, feeling overwhelmed, worried or sad either during pregnancy or soon after the birth of a baby? If so, this could be Perinatal Mood Disorder (PMD). PMD is very common – one in five women and one in ten men experience it as new parents. However help is at hand because Karitane has a great wealth of experience helping families in this situation.
