”It takes a village to raise a parent and a parent to raise a child.”
– Adaobi Udechuku, Perinatal Psychiatrist and GLOW Co-Founder 

Welcome to the GLOW village: a whole of family, whole of health approach to perinatal emotional wellbeing

GLOW is a contemporary, multidisciplinary clinic that supports the emotional health and wellbeing of women, their infants and families – from preconception to kindergarten.

Founders and Psychiatrists Dr Adaobi Udechuku and Dr Lucinda Smith share a passion for perinatal and infant mental health and wellbeing. It was this passion coupled with identification of a real community need that drove the creation of GLOW’s unique service, philosophy and model of care.

Research and personal stories tell us that the perinatal period – from preconception to kindergarten – is a critical time for mothers, fathers, their infants, families and the wider community. Maternal emotional health, such as postnatal depression, can have profound effects on all. Fortunately, maternal mental health issues can be prevented and treated through early detection, effective treatment and holistic care.

Located in Berwick in the South East of Melbourne, GLOW cares for women, their infants and families in one of Melbourne’s fastest growing regions.
