New family program
We understand that starting a family can be challenging. The New Family program has been developed in collaboration with early childhood experts, Safe Sleep Space & Nourish Perinatal Wellness with the aim of helping our members to navigate the early parenting period with a newborn baby through to the toddler stage. The innovative and specialised program provides practical information and support on a range of early parenting matters. Topics include pregnancy health, labour, birth, breastfeeding, parenthood, infant and toddler sleep & settling.
To be eligible for this program you must be a member of Teachers Health, hold an eligible Hospital product - Top Hospital (Gold), Mid Hospital (Basic Plus) or Basic Hospital (Basic Plus) - with all waiting periods served, be expecting a baby or have a baby who is less than three months old. Please note members on StarterPak (Basic Plus) or Mid Classic (Silver Plus) memberships are not eligible to join this program. Additional eligibility criteria may apply.
Members participating in the program receive:
- Platinum membership to Nourish Learning Hub – Access to Nourish’s online antenatal and early parenting program. Learn from qualified midwives, lactation consultants, child health nurses, sleep consultants, psychologists, parent educators and more. Topics include pregnancy health, labour, birth, breastfeeding, parenthood, infant and toddler sleep & settling. Your membership also includes a confidential emotional health screen.
- AROMABABY skincare products – The AROMABABY skincare pack includes AROMABABY Barrier Balm™ and Mother & Child Oil. Barrier Balm (25gm) – AROMABABY Barrier Balm™ was developed as a natural and organic solution to help soothe nappy rash, cradle cap and other dry skin. Soothing natural oils work to moisturise, while providing a light barrier to protect the skin. Mother & Child Oil (100ml) – The blend of pure cold pressed organic oil, GMO-free natural Vitamin E, organic calendula and evening primrose oils make this an ideal first massage oil for your baby. Fragrance and essential-oil free, it’s also suitable for women during and after pregnancy.
Members participating in the program also receive access to telephone consultations with a trained Safe Sleep Space consultant. Based on individual circumstances, the consultations will support members through any early parenting challenges, particularly concerning infant sleep and settling.
