Our Team Members

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.

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

  • The Royal Women’s Hospital

  • The Royal Children’s Hospital

  • Parent Infant Research Institute

  • Murdoch Children’s Research Institute

  • Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia (PANDA)
