Welcome to motherhood! We are SO excited for you and your new addition!
Being a mum can be challenging at times, so we thought we could compile a list of some great resources for you on your journey, where you can find ideas, advice, support and information in the journey of motherhood. Please note that if you are concerned in ANY way about you or your child, you should consult a health care professional (not just read about it on the internet).
Health Direct (information below) is a great number to call if you have questions or concerns and are unsure whether you need to see a doctor.
Note this is an Australian website, so most of the information will be more helpful for those residing in Australia.
