Postnatal Daystay

The focus of our day stay service is to provide additional support in a warm, friendly and nurturing environment. This service provides extra care, support and information with feeding, settling advice and maternal rest.

CARE midwifery is the only midwifery service in Canberra and the surrounding region that provides a day stay service for new parents and babies needing additional one on one time. 

 Ali or Mel will help you develop skills, knowledge and strategies to overcome some of the common challenges of the early days of parenting and help you to develop a plan for overcoming any issues or concerns you have. We will follow up with a phone call the next day for additional support. Maternal massage therapy or other self care can be arranged while you are in attendance (additional costs may apply).

Morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch are provided.
