Sleep School story - a missed opportunity to tell the whole story

As a specialist Statewide early parenting service, Tweddle is often called a Sleep School. This term however can devalue the true impact of our crucial work in the first thousand days of a baby's life (age 0-2). We understand that for the thousands of families that call us for help the term ‘sleep school’ reduces their issues down to one handy term. In many cases however, an unsettled baby is a symptom of other more serious things happening at home. Crucially, when families phone in for what they think is a baby that needs more sleep, it is an opportunity for a vulnerable mum or dad to unpack a whole range of other concerns.

Dads invited to Work It Out

After a successful launch of the first round of Tweddle's new Working Out Dads Program, we're calling on dads for the second program. Commencing in July, the program is for Dads living in Wyndham or in and around Maribyrnong. The 6 week after hours program is proving a hit with dads who spend an hour in facilitated discussion and 30 minutes working out.


About Tweddle Child and Family Health Service 

Tweddle requires a health professional referral in order to triage families into our funded Day Stay and Residential programs.


Our Private Day Stay and daytime, evening and overnight In Home Services, telephone and skype consultations do not require a referral.
