Pre and Postnatal Support
Are you standing at the door of parenthood thinking ‘I have no idea!’ Feeling overwhelmed? From feeding to sleep to self-care, we’re here to help.
LIFE after BIRTH Education is a thoughtful and well-researched postnatal support business. It is founded by Megan Ryan, a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse, Midwife, Certified Newborn and Infant Sleep Consultant, and mother-of-two beautiful children, who is determined to bridge the gap by providing an accessible postnatal support service to all parents via face-to-face consultation either in home (if preferred) on Sydneys Northern Beaches or online further abroad.
We are a village of nurturing professionals who embrace you the moment you enter the world of parenthood by providing an accessible, practical and honest postnatal support service. In this village, you are always supported by health professionals, but most importantly by Mums.
LIFE after BIRTH fills a gap that has been identified as a major contributing factor in rising maternal mental health statistics. The gap that provides highly researched, professional, and trusted resources to guide new parents through a time in their life where support makes the days easier, and nights not as long.
While the world of parenting can be incredibly daunting, we’re here to make sure that the days and the nights no longer merge into one long anxious moment in time.
"I felt supported and encouraged through the entire process, and was confident that we were in knowledgeable and safe hands the whole way. Megan is professional, supportive, understanding, caring, hugely encouraging, and actually, just lovely to work with. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough."

"We would strongly recommend Megan and her sleep program if you are having troubles getting your little one/s to self settle or sleep for longer stretches. She really helped our family get more sleep."

"Megan has been amazing with helping me with my little one. He now goes to sleep all on his own! Megan was very approachable and supportive; nothing was too much trouble. I am grateful for the knowledge and confidence I now have after working with Megan. Thank you!"

We Are Breaking The Stigma
I am working to continue to break the stigma around perinatal anxiety and depression. That’s why, throughout each calendar year, LIFE after BIRTH will be raising funds or donating portions of sales to the Gidget Foundation, where Megan Ryan, LIFE after BIRTH Founder is a Gidget Angel, sharing her own story. This is in aim of supporting new parents experiencing perinatal anxiety and depression.
