Karitane responded to COVID-19 with a 100% digital transformation of services to ensure safe and accessible care for families. With the release of the Australian Government’s “3-Step Recovery Plan” we are excited to announce the gradual re-introduction of face-to-face services. We will continue to offer a range of virtual services which have achieved such positive outcomes for families and exceptional feedback. For our re-introduction of face-to-face services see here. As COVID-19 continues to put increased pressure on the health system we no longer require a GP/health professional referral. Access for parents still remains easier than ever, parents can self-refer on-line here

Karitane Oran Park provides a unique parenting service on the premises of Oran Park Podium Shopping Centre and co-located with community health and general practice partners. Karitane empowers families by providing parenting education, support and guidance in a relaxed environment for families with children from newborn to 5 years. Our skilled and caring team works in partnership with your family to assist you in identifying and achieving your goals.

This service includes individual consultations and therapeutic groups for parenting concerns such as sleeping and settling, feeding, toddler behaviour, adjustment to parenting and postnatal depression and anxiety.

Keeping your baby safe when sleeping means reducing risks in their sleeping environment. Though not everything can be controlled, reducing risk factors helps to keep your child safe.

Wrapping your Baby

The reflexes of newborn babies often startle them easily and tend to wake them during sleep. Many parents have found that wrapping babies until they’re three to four months old (the time when these reflexes begin to disappear) helps reduce strong startle reactions and improves sleep.
