The birth of your baby is often a much-awaited event, but it can also be a worrying and stressful time for new parents. 

We all know that babies do not arrive into this world with a set of instructions, nor do they always do what the textbooks say they should be doing!

Enter Karitane® and our Karitane nurses and maternity nannies – qualified, experienced baby whisperers and super nannies all rolled into one who can offer parents support and advice to make the first two years of parenting a happy and relaxed experience.

Karitane® and our Karitane® Professionals can offer you practical in-home support, care and training, whether it’s your first baby, twins or additional baby.  We come to your own home, watch, listen and create a plan tailored to your own needs.

Our services and packages are flexible.  We take time to listen and understand your individual needs, lifestyle and preferences.  We will tailor a package to suit you – one that will enable you to be the best parent you can be.

Some of the services we provide are:

In-home advice – for anything from organising a nursery to weaning onto a bottle, one of our experienced Karitane® Professionals will come into your home and help you with your particular issue.

A day in the life – let one of our Karitane® Professionals spend the day with you and your baby to set up a practical plan for any issues you may have, and provide reassurance.

Bringing baby home – we can help smoothe the transition from hospital to home by providing you a 24-hour package of care, which helps you get to know your baby and become a confident parent.

Night nanny – sometimes you just need a good night’s sleep. Let one of Karitane®‘s night nannies feed and settle your baby/ies during the night while you catch up on some much needed rest.

Sleep training (from four months’ to five years’ old). One of our sleep experts will come into your home and provide assessment, guidance and support around your child’s sleep routine.

Multiples – if you have twins or triplets, let us help you manage your multiple bundles of joy and establish a plan that will work for you.

Gift certificates – what better gift for a new family than a helping hand to establish feeding, sleeping or routine with a newborn?  We offer gift certificates for you to give your family, friend or work colleague.
