Preparing for parenthood is unlike anything you’ve ever done before.
As you await the arrival of your baby, you’ll experience many emotions: elation, joy, anticipation—not to mention stress, anxiety and fear. These emotions are all part of the journey when it comes to this momentous event: a transition that will change your life forever.
Along with all the excitement of impending parenthood come the inevitable questions: Am I ready to become a parent? Is what I’m experiencing normal? What if I do something wrong?
While family and friends may be on hand to offer advice and insights during this time, their support is not the same as that of an experienced professional. That’s where baby+me can help.
The baby+me program provides practical support when you need it most: during pregnancy right through to your baby’s first birthday.
It includes phone and email contact with a midwife who will provide guidance and assistance, plus an informative website relating to pregnancy and parenting.
If you have any questions or concerns, whether about how to prepare for the birth or how to care best for yourself and your infant, an expert will be there to offer practical assistance and support.
To access the complimentary baby+me program, you can purchase Ultimate Hospital (Gold) or Premium Hospital cover.
If you already hold Hospital cover with us you may be able to access baby+me® if you have held an eligible hospital cover with Australian Unity for a continuous period of 12 months.
Specific support is also available to adoptive and surrogate parents who hold eligible cover.
To check your eligibility, please review your fact sheet or contact Australian Unity on 13 29 39.
Simply call us on 1300 339 042 between 9am – 5pm weekdays or email Babyandme@australianunity.com.au and we will help you get started.
If you are already registered for the baby+me® program and want to contact the midwives or update any of your details, feel free to call us on 1300 339 042 or email Babyandme@australianunity.com.au.
The baby+me program is delivered by our health partner Remedy Healthcare.
