Who We Are
Parentwood Baby and Family Wellness Centre is situated against the beautiful background of Rietondale Park. We offer comprehensive care to families from the time that they fall pregnant through their children’s early childhood years.
Parentwood was started in 2013 by registered nurse and clinic sister Kristel Steyn-Battheu. The practice was started as a second branch of Netcare Femina Hospital’s Stork’s Nest Clinic.
The birth of Parentwood provided us with the much-needed space to assist more mothers with their well-baby visits, and to host our support groups, courses and workshops.
Community Health Nursing doesn’t receive the rightful place that it should in South Africa. Families and communities consist of complex structures, and one cannot address a single health problem in an individual without giving attention to their overall physical and mental well-being, and without recognising the role of their family and community.
At Parentwood we are passionate about not only treating disease, but providing holistic and preventative care. We also have an extensive network of other professionals to whom we can refer families who need more assistance.
Both Parentwood and Femina’s Stork’s Nest Clinics are well-known for our excellent service, with many clients traveling to us from various towns outside Pretoria and even Gauteng.
We value each family and each visit, and aim to make each experience a positive and empowering one.
