Possums newborn careDr Gemma Ossolinski

Life with a newborn baby is full of wonders and challenges. Many parents struggle with breastfeeding, sleep problems, and cry-fuss marathons. The Possums approach to the newborn period is designed with modern evidence for managing these challenging parts of parenthood.

Dr. Gemma Ossolinski is currently undertaking accreditation in the Possums program for neuroprotective developmental care. She can assist with breastfeeding difficulties, infant sleep issues and babies that cry & fuss frequently.

“I had my first child in 2018. We struggled enormously with breastfeeding and several other issues. I know exactly how hard the first few months of parenthood can be. I learned about the Possums programs during a medical conference in 2019. I knew immediately that this was an approach I wanted to learn about for my patients and for myself. It is a very practical, flexible and human approach that understands the instinctive emotion associated with caring for a baby.”
