Our Team

As a specialist perinatal psychology practice, Mums Matter Psychology consists of a team of registered Clinical and General Psychologists, Mental Health Social Workers and Occupational Therapists with a minimum of 6 years training, all whom work daily with parents during pregnancy and post-natal period experiencing mild to moderate mental health issues.

We help women who are feeling emotionally or mentally challenged by pregnancy or early parenthood to move toward meaningful engagement in parenting and life.

Through a deep understanding of the challenges of the pregnancy and postnatal period, we provide a space where you can feel completely safe and open up.

Together, we'll explore how to get to a place where your ups and downs are manageable instead of overwhelming.

The Mums Matter Psychology team have worked for, completed clinical placements or training within various organisations focused on perinatal and infant mental health including:

  • The Royal Women’s Hospital

  • The Royal Children’s Hospital

  • Parent Infant Research Institute

  • Murdoch Children’s Research Institute

  • Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia (PANDA)

  • The Australian Psychological Society

  • Centre for Perinatal Psychology

  • Perinatal Emotional Health Program

​​

As a mandatory requirement, all of our team have completed perinatal mental health training provided by:

  • Centre of Perinatal Excellence (COPE)

  • University of Sydney
