Postnatal Home Visits for new mums & babies

This is where Thrive Perinatal all began! 


Many new parents struggle when they bring a new baby home for the first time, getting to an appointment can feel like an impossible and overwhelming challenge. 


Dr Miranda established Thrive Perinatal in 2020 to address this challenge. Initially a Home Visit service, Dr Miranda would visit new mums & babies in the comfort and convenience of their own home and provide a "one stop shop" to help new mums and their babies.    

Thrive Perinatal has evolved and Dr Miranda is mostly consulting in person at Maternal & Infant Wellbeing Melbourne in Parkville & with Dr Joe Sgroi (ObGyn) in East Melbourne.  She does have some limited availability to visit new mums and babies in their own home in Melbourne and still loves this opportunity if time and location permits!  If you are interested in booking a Postnatal Mum & Baby Home Visit, please send an enquiry via email or click the link below.


Home Visit Fees* are as per her usual 60 minute consulting rate but with a $200 Home Visit surcharge + travel time.  Minumum visit duration is for 1 hour unless by individual arrangement.

Medicare rebates apply to all GP Home Visits, and note that you may get back up to 85% of the total fee if you & your family have registered for and crossed the Extended Medicare Safety Nets threshold for the current year.

*Home Visit fees & Medicare rebates may vary as they are dependent on:

  • duration of Home Visit consultation

  • number of patients seen at visit 

  • Home Visit location & travel time/distance

  • Sociable or unsociable hours, eg weekdays, evenings, weekends, public holidays

  • Medicare eligibility and Medicare Safety Nets eligibility
