Business / Provider Profile
We are leaders in evidence-based support of breastfeeding, baby sleep and cry-fuss problems, and parent mood. Developed by our Founder and Medical Director Dr Pamela Douglas, Neuroprotective Developmental Care (or 'the Possums programs') offers a genuine paradigm shift - we flip much of the popular advice parents receive upside down. Our work has been developed and published over the past 15 years from the latest research including in lactation science, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, sleep science, attachment psychology and a new set of powerful psychological strategies known as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. We've been transforming family's lives in the Possums Clinic or through our education of health professionals since 2011.
Why us
Possums & Co. is a highly ethical, values-based organisation with a reputation for kindness and no judgement. In an environment increasingly shaped and co-opted by commercial interests, our charity is founded upon a passion to help make a better world, by helping you grow joy in your little one's early life. We value integrity and respect, and place the best interests of families over financial profit. Possums & Co. is built upon the conviction that if we hold to our guiding values, our organisation will thrive ... because if we hold to our guiding values, the parent and health professional communities will trust us and support us.
