North Shore Private Emotional Wellbeing Program

Your emotional wellbeing is integral to our maternity service. All pregnant women at North Shore Private are offered an appointment with a Midwife to discuss their emotional health during their pregnancy. This program was established by the Gidget Foundation in 2001 and has a long standing relationship with North Shore Private Hospital. North Shore Private was the first private hospital to introduce antenatal screening to recognise the importance of every woman’s emotional wellbeing during pregnancy and the start of their journey into parenthood.

North Shore Private is proud to be working with the Gidget Foundation. The Foundation’s aim of promoting a community where parents are empowered, nurtured and valued. We hope to assist in making the journey to parenthood one that is supported as well as enriching.

Our Emotional Wellbeing Program provides women with the opportunity to address their feelings and to discuss this confidentially with one of our midwives.

Australian research suggests that all pregnant women benefit from the opportunity to discuss their emotional health. Research conducted by the Gidget Foundation at North Shore Private over the past 5 years has confirmed these findings.
