A positive birth is just the beginning, we assist you transitioning into parenthood.

When we are pregnant our focus is on preparing for the baby and focusing on birth. Rouse Hill Women's Health Physio & Clinic acknowledge that while this is important it is only the beginning. 

The transition into parenthood over the first few weeks is often difficult, stressful and a huge learning curve. 

Sometimes it is the smallest little insights into this period that gives new parents the confidence and courage to know that they are doing everything they can and that they can get through it. 

This course gives you the knowledge to transition from your current relationship into parents. You enter the hospital as two and leave as a family. 

A step above the rest. 

Not only do we provide new mums with information to assist in the recovery of their body but what to expect of a new born. This way at 1am when your baby is screaming and there is a rash on their belly, you have some deeper understanding of whether you need to be concerned. 

Let us assist you to:

Feel confident

Trust yourself and your decisions

Navigate the first 6weeks

Feel connected
