The Parents Village

The Parents Village is a unique pre and postnatal support service for expectant and new parents.

Founded by parents and professionals - Lana Sussman (social worker and counsellor) and Kirsty Levin (psychologist and counsellor) – their vision is to rebuild a village community for Sydney based parents and parents-to-be.  The famous old proverb states “It takes a village to raise a child”. Kirsty and Lana also know that it takes a village to raise parents too!

Becoming a parent is about much more than giving birth. Birth is just the beginning of an ongoing learning curve and transformation, and no parent should feel unprepared and alone in this life altering experience. 

Lana and Kirsty take an honest, holistic and often humerous approach to connect, support, nurture and empower new parents as they transition into and adjust to this new role. Through a range of services including: prenatal parenthood-prep workshops, postnatal support groups, career coaching, and mobile counselling services, expectant and new parents have an opportunity to explore, process and prepare for all that comes with this extraordinary journey. 

The Parents Village is based in Kingsford and services South, East and Western Sydney.

For more information and to get in touch with Kirsty or Lana please email them at:, visit their website: or  join their Facebook discussion & support groups: The Parents Village Sydney and Mama Nurture Support Group for first and second time mums.
