24 Hour Pregnancy Birth & Baby Helpline

24 Hour Pregnancy Birth & Baby Helpline

Since it launched in 2010 on July 1, women, partners, and other family members have been treated to the 24 hour Pregnancy Birth and Baby Helpline here in Australia.

This free service, provided by the Royal District Nursing Service Ltd, is available to help families with any questions or concerns they may have regarding pregnancy, birth, or a baby’s the year of life.

From 7am until midnight EST, a well-trained and experienced counselling team is available for families to ask questions, reach out for help, and obtain information about a variety of topics, from prenatal nutrition to breastfeeding to relationship support and health concerns.

What to Expect When You Call a Counselor

The counselors aren’t there to try to push their agenda on families. The support received is non-judgmental and completely unbiased, and they help by focusing on the caller’s goal and discussing how the caller can best reach that goal. The counselors are trained to handle a wide range of topics:

  • Unexpected outcomes (i.e. Genetic conditions, unplanned pregnancies, miscarriages)

  • Relationship issues

  • Fertility questions

  • Adjusting to parenthood (for mums and dads)

  • Dealing with the demands of a newborn

Should families call the helpline outside of regular hours, mums and dads will still be connected to support staff who will be able to provide them with resources and referrals. The staff can also arrange a phone appointment for you with a counselor for when it’s most convenient.

You’re Never Alone

Not enough mums and dads talk about just how overwhelmed they feel – not only after the baby arrives, but during the pregnancy and conception as well. We all want to do our best and do everything “right”, but this pressure only adds more stress to the lives of parents, so much so that many parents feel as if they’re “losing it”. This helpline is there so that parents and their families are never alone.

Even if you just need someone to talk to about your baby or the difficult time you’re having coping with being a new parent, that’s what the counselors are there for. Whether it’s a “silly question”or a troubling concern, take advantage of this free and confidential resource and call 1800-882-436.
