With a motto like ‘practical strategies for gaining sanity and serenity’ Melbourne is set  to welcome its first parental paradise, The Nests.

Once up and running The Nests will be a place for new parents to seek advice from a multitude of medical professionals (from midwives and GPs to lactation consultants and psychologists) as well as drop in on co-working spaces specifically made for parents and their kids.

Founder Pippa Campbell explains the project and how it will help new parents, as well as the series of community awareness events called Motherhood Matters that will further support the project.
