Congratulations on your pregnancy, dear one.

You may have spent time going to workshops and planning for the birth of your baby, but have you thought about what happens afterwards? You and your partner and then also a new tiny human at home!?

It takes a village to raise a child, or so they say...  Even though we no longer live in villages with mud huts, having a supportive community after the birth of your child is as important as ever. Every single person deserves a warm blanket of support to hold them as they grow in their role as new parents.  

welcome to our village


Hi, I'm Frances and I'm the chief village builder and founder of Perth Postnatal Village. I work every day with new mums to reduce their feelings of isolation and overwhelm so that they can feel confident and supported as they nurture their newborn.


These first 6 weeks of having a new baby are known as your fourth trimester, and this time can be overwhelming, transformative, peaceful, loving, isolating and so many other things. 

What a great, relaxed and comfortable environment at the workshop! It was great to take time out to reaffirm I was doing the right thing. Lots of constructive conversation and stories.

It's easy to feel overwhelmed with all the choices you need to make during pregnancy, there are heaps of things to decide. But many couples don't spend a lot of time thinking about what happens after their baby is born. There is a huge transition from woman to mother.
