WELCOME TO BLOSSOMING BUMP
Blossoming Bump provides a wonderful continuity of care model to women and their families in the Peel region. Our professional midwifery service will provide you with the knowledge and advise to support a more relaxed and enjoyable experience.
Expecting a newborn is an exciting chapter in your life but can also be a bit daunting, especially for first time parents. This is why we provide a wide range of antenatal classes that are evidence based, informative and fun.
What to expect from your Blossoming Bump Midwives
As Endorsed Midwives we provide continuity of care throughout pregnancy and the postnatal period. We provide antenatal care that covers all aspects of your care including booking into hospital, ordering and interpreting blood tests and scans, and all your routine pregnancy visits, monitoring your own and your babies physical and mental well being.
After your baby is born you will receive postnatal care at the beautiful Blossoming Bump Clinic.
If you are needing assistance with breast feeding we can arrange appointments with the lactation consultant, which is also bulk billed.
Private lactation appointments are available if your baby is over 6 weeks of age (fee applies).
All appointments are bulk billed and our private care is in collaboration with Dr Van Der Merwe, a local GP Obstetrician. Should any pregnancy complications occur, we will consult with the relevant medical professional to ensure we address the issue quickly.
From March 1st 2023 all new patients will be required to pay an admin fee.
Your pregnancy care will take place at Blossoming Bump, 86 Anstruther Road Mandurah 6210.
Please message if you would like further information or would like to arrange an appointment.
A GP referral is not required to provide care.

PERINATAL & INFANT MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
The perinatal period, lasting from pregnancy to the first 12 months after giving birth can be a period of significant adjustment for the mother, child and other family members. There are major physical changes, emotional changes, and often lifestyle changes associated with this stage of life. Perinatal counselling helps parents-to-be and parents to adjust to this life stage and helps with related issues such as losses, grief, trauma, postnatal depression/anxiety and other perinatal disturbances.
For parent-infant or parent-toddler psychotherapy, parents and infants/young children attend together. This approach is used to explore difficulties with sleep, toilet training, tantrums, adaptation to fostering or adoption and other forms of early relationship difficulties caused by post- partum disturbances, chronic illness, disrupted attachment, separation and trauma. The focus is on strengthening the attachment relationship between the child and her caregivers in order to prevent future difficulties.
