About Julie Clarke’s Baby Care Support Service?


Julie introducing two beautiful young sisters Amali to Makeda to each other for the very first time, an hour after the birth, such a lovely tender moment.

Julie also conducts a fun pram walking group (no charge) weekly for the mums who have done both of her courses and also accessed the Baby Care Support Service – we enjoy a delicious breakfast at the beach, babies socialising, park play, pram walk,  informative conversation… it’s an amazing service… attended personally by Julie

What can Julie help with?

For many new families, I have been helping with:

  • feeding, settling and sleeping issues,
  • colic wind bowel pain, reflux, stressed agitated difficult to settle babies
  • problems such as positioning and attachment,
  • “How to”expressing and storing breast-milk,
  • Relaxation baby bathing technique,  Baby massage,
  • Newborn settling and calming techniques,
  • Not sleeping enough at night,
  • Won’t go down to bed early enough, wakes too often through the night,
  • Sleeps really well through the day and then awake all night,
  • Only wants to have short sleeps (cat naps) both day and night,
  • Interaction with baby; playing and having fun,
  • Enhancing baby’s physical and learning development,
  • “How to” introducing solid foods with maximum nutrition and minimizing risks of allergies or food intolerance’s,
  • Figuring out priorities for your own special routines, and answer all those questions as they’ve come up.

How does Julie help with this service?  

I provide suggestions, active listening, answers and creative practical ideas that blend easily with the existing family/routine structure and of course gently guiding the mum and dad through new skills.  Often I will show how to do it and then stand by to help if required, it’s quite surprising actually just how much can be covered in one or two hours.

I prefer to carefully limit the session to just one or two hours so mum and bub don’t get tired.

One or two hours per week or per month or per quarter spread out over the first year is a wonderful help and support to the new mum.
Everyone learns and grows best when well supported through an experience of learning by doing it themselves without any judgement or criticism, just gentle positive guidance.”

Couples who have been through my courses are welcome to book me for just one hour at a time and we can see if we need to extend it or they can book 2 hours, or whatever they feel they need, I respond to their needs at the time.

Baby Care Support Service is provided in your own home for your ease and convenience

In my work I comply with the WHO (World Health Organization) Baby Friendly Initiative and Federal and State Dept of Health recommendations for feeding babies as well as current evidenced based philosophy of avoiding rigid routines for mother and baby.

Payment for the Baby Care Support Service?

Only $75/hour and I have kept the structure fairly loose to accommodate differing needs.
I’m prepared to cover the St George and Sutherland areas only so I don’t need to charge for traveling. However I have been known to travel and this is negotiable.
This service is available during the hours I’m not teaching the courses, and limited exclusively for the couples who’ve been through the courses.
