Hello there
I am a Midwife currently practicing in Melbourne and considering setting up a postnatal home visiting service in the future. I'm doing a bit of research at the moment about how new parents are feeling in regards to the amount of support available in the first 6 weeks of bringing your babies home from hospital. I am particularly keen to hear from families in Melbourne's Western suburbs, but happy to hear from you over in the East as well! I have set up a quick 6 question survey which will take about 3 minutes to complete and can be found at the following link:


I am also particularly interested to hear from families who accessed the services of a midwife in the 6 weeks after birth or wanted to but found it difficult. You can email your experiences to me at

Your time is very much appreciated
