Home Visitor & Day Stay Programs
How do you get a baby to sleep?
Supporting families to develop healthier sleep patterns is possible through either of our personalised family support programs;
- Home visiting support program where your Consultant comes to your home
- Day-stay support program at one of our clinics.
Home visiting support programs are only available to families within the Melbourne area currently (Northern, Southern and Eastern regions only).
Day-stay support programs are available to all families in Metro and Rural regions, provided families able to travel and access our clinic in Melbourne (Eltham).
The structure of the day-stay support & home visiting involves one on one time and 1-2 weeks follow up support from your personal Consultant. All services are tailored to meet your individual needs, and all families receive a free copy of the Safe Sleep Space book (2012 edn.)
Costs for services range depending on the program, the interventions and the families requirements, starting from $400 + gst.

Family Support Programs
Safe Sleep Space supports families in helping babies and toddlers find sleep WITHOUT using extinction techniques incorporated in controlled crying, modified controlled comforting and other time based interventions.
The Safe Sleep Space approach has been sought after by thousands or families and professionals over the past 8 years because the focus is on infant and family mental health and wellbeing. We are concerned about the process as well as the outcome when addressing infant and toddler sleep.
The services and resources Safe Sleep Space offer are underpinned by research and understanding the importance of the uniqueness of every infant, toddler and parent; and offer support reflective of those considerations. This gentle approach sits well with parents because it promotes parental understanding and respect for the infant or toddlers experience and communication, and encourages parents to comfort their children through a change process.
The demand for knowledge surrounding the Safe Sleep Space approach is reflected in the demand for Helen Stevens (Author of Safe Sleep Space) to appear on; The Project Chanel 10, The Herald Sun, The Today Show, ABC 774 podcasts, Chanel 9 news as a ‘sleep specialist’. Safe Sleep Space has been responding to the growing need for our family support service from professionals and families across Australia.
Safe Sleep Space has a trained, qualified and experienced health professional team who are qualified to support families with a range of early parenting concerns, namely:
- infant and toddler sleep
- feeding struggles
- maternal adjustment
- irritable infant
-How do you get a baby to sleep
- infant mental health
- parental mental health concerns (mother & father)
- Being a dad
- And a range of early parenting issues that may impact on sleep
Home Visiting Program
Our qualified, experienced Consultant comes to your home to guide and support your family.
The core of our work is currently based in Melbourne Metropolitan area (Eastern, Southern and Northern Regions). We do hope to expand this service next year.
Programs vary according to family needs, with costs starting at $400 (+gst) for our home visit and follow up support.
Day Stay Program
The growing need for our family services has resulted in our program where the families come to our clinic, for a day, where they are away from the distractions of family demands, so they can focus on the 1:1 personal consultation for 6 hours. The day program is currently conducted from our Eltham venue, with more centres opening soon. We welcome families from all Metro and rural areas if able to travel to our venue for the day. Costs for the day program and follow up Consultant support is $700 (+gst)

Experiencing is believing! I seriously didn’t believe our sleep disaster could have been fixed, I was hoping at best, for an improvement. You have changed our lives and cannot thank you enough for how this feels. And it was so lovely and gentle. Our heart filled thanks (J odie & family)
As a mother of 3 I really had reservations about what you could do to help us with my 5 month old little baby who slept for 10 minutes 3 times a day on a good day, and woke 2 hourly overnight. He is fixed, I am SO much more functional and funnily enough the entire family is in a better place. I recommend you to everyone I speak to. Eternal thanks. (Bianca and boys)
If I had truly believed for one minute that you could make my 2 1/2 year old sleep, I would have called you years ago. It was miraculous, she just needed some loving guidance and …. she sleeps all night after her book, cuddle and kiss! If I could say is that we tried controlled comforting, and it was horrible, and put me off ever wanting to do anything again. This was perfect for our family. Thanks (Michele, Ben, Olivia & little Oscar)
The minute you told me to follow my gut feelings and watch what my baby was communication, our lives turned around. We actually had a book burning! No more strict routines for us, we are all happy and loving life with a routine that works for us all, which is the opposite to what we had before you helped us. Sincere thanks to you for the unbelievable changes in our lives. (Liv, Max and Jake)
