Sydney Hope Family Cottage


Sydney Hope Family Cottage

Sydney Hope Family Cottage is a wellbeing centre for families which combines a comprehensive range of postnatal health services for infants aged from birth to 18 months.

The services are provided by registered nurses with maternal, child and family health qualifications.

Our aim is to provide support and advice to enable families to confidently manage the many challenges of parenting.


These services are available through home visiting. Nurses consult with families to determine the length of stay, which is usually 2.5 hours.


Fees reflect the level of services provided and can be negotiated at the time of referral. If you are in a private health fund, you may be eligible for cover. Please check with your health fund if your policy covers this service.


Families can self refer or be referred by an early childhood health nurse, a GP or another health practitioner.

What parents say

"I have recently been fortunate enough to have nurses from your centre conduct home visits with me. I wanted to pass on my thanks for the support, guidance and compassion which I received during this time. I found your service invaluable in getting me through a very rough patch of parenting."


"The nurse was a very warm, caring person. It was veery easy to talk to her."


"After being refused help from many  services I can’t tell you how wonderful your service is. I've needed help for some time and now I have it – great."


"Your service is invaluable. I was at the point of exhaustion from lack of sleep and within one day of help from the nurse, I have regained my confidence in getting my daughter to sleep. It feels great and I can't thank you enough."


"The nurse was great. Very encouraging, gave me lots of information to work with. She listened well and I felt her advice was tailored very well to suit our situation. I have started to see improvements already!"
