Plan to Thrive: Building a Supportive Journey into Parenthood

Emotional support and mental health support for perinatal anxiety & depression Narrabeen

Embarking on the journey of parenthood is a transformative experience, filled with joy, anticipation, and its own set of challenges. During this pivotal time, thoughtful preplanning for after the birth are indispensable, yet often underestimated.

Navigating the emotional and lifestyle changes of parenthood can be overwhelming. That's why having a robust support system and a plan for the postnatal period is so important. It ensures not only the health and well-being of the parents but also fosters a nurturing environment for the newest addition to your family.

Our northern beaches counsellors provide new and expecting parents—mums, dads, and guardians—with a caring, supportive mental health service, to guide you and your family throughout your perinatal journey, from conception, up until your child is 12 months old.

Our mission?

To arm you with the knowledge and support needed, we aim to ensure you're fully prepared to navigate the postnatal period with confidence. We offer targeted knowledge, care, and support, making this a more manageable and positive experience. Our focus is on preparing you for the realities of parenting, ensuring you're equipped to face both expected and unexpected challenges. We concentrate on:

Connecting parents struggling to navigate the complex waters of pregnancy & new parenthood to perinatal mental health services for when you need it most.

  • Real Expectations: We skip the perfect paint colour for the nursery or stacking up on all the latest gadgets. And as much as we’d like to, we can’t bank sleep like money, ready to cash out when baby arrives. Nope, it's about understanding the seismic shifts in your life, relationships, and identity.

  • Building Your Village: It takes a village, and we’re helping you build yours. From choosing the right support to leaning on your partner and fostering a community of care, we guide you in creating a network that nurtures both your child and your evolving family dynamics.

  • The Nitty-Gritty: The practical advice and essential know-how you'll need to navigate the first 6 – 12 months of parenthood, minus the overwhelm.
