Supporting the family – body and mind

At Mothering Touch, we try to support families throughout pregnancy and the first years of parenting on all levels, in all dimensions. As part of that quest, we have two practitioners working in our new Treatment Room, listening to and counselling families, helping keep healthy minds in healthy bodies.

Jenny Jackson, Registered Dietitian, has a particular interest in nutrition during pregnancy and lactation, as well as in helping to introduce solids to babies in the middle of the first year. She is smart, compassionate and funny! A joy to listen to. She came and gave a talk to the Doulas of Victoria last week – the conversation flowed for over two hours as we shared our passion for caring for childbearing families.

Theresa Gulliver, Therapeutic Counsellor, has a particular interest in mothers and step-mothers. She runs our Motherhood Circle here at Mothering Touch, and does a great occasional workshop called “Find your Joy as a Mother”. In private sessions, she is available to help parents find their way through this new identity and role.

You can book an appointment with Jenny or with Theresa through our on-line booking page.
