**COVID-19 Safety Announcement**

For the safety of patients, staff and clinicians, the Melbourne Paediatric Service has decided that from close of business on Friday 27th March, 2020, we will no longer be offering face-to-face consultations as a practice, until further notice.

I will continue to offer consultations to patients and families from home via Face time or Skype or by phone on Tuesday or Wednesday. To book complete the Appointment Form on the home page.
I trust you will all stay safe and calm in these stressful weeks and months. I'm here for you and your family so feel free to reach out 🙏🙂

Welcome

Parenting Matters is a professional nursing health service offering prompt assistance to families struggling with problems of infant feeding, crying and separation, as well general parenting concerns, with a special interest in feeding difficulty. While these are common worries for many parents, having limited time in a consultation with some health professionals may mean that you feel they have been unable to discuss all your concerns. Parenting Matters believes that no parental worry is too small to ignore.
