Jaclyn Schultz

Jaclyn is a Nurse, Midwife, Maternal, and Child Health Nurse, and a mother of two children with over 17 years’ of experience working in the hospital and community setting.

She started her career in the Intensive Care Unit at the Alfred Hospital, where she worked for 7 years before deciding to study Midwifery. She then worked at the Royal Women’s Hospital across the Pregnancy, Birth, and Post-Partum continuum. Wanting to get more hands-on with parents across their parenting journey Jaclyn then went on to become a Maternal and Child Health Nurse (MCHN) and has been qualified and practicing since 2017. In her time as an MCHN, she has worked in the universal service and the enhanced maternal health service amongst our most socially vulnerable community members.

Jaclyn is a certified Circle of Security facilitator, which is a relationship-based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children. Circle of Security enables us to look beyond a child’s immediate behavior and think about how to meet their genuine relationship needs.

She has also completed courses on Aware Parenting, which is an attachment-based and trauma-informed approach to parenting that does not use either punishments or rewards. It is based on the work of Aletha Solter, a developmental psychologist.

As a Maternal health nurse, Jaclyn can prepare you to confidently support your babies and children on your parenting journey. This includes enhancing your capacity to support young children and address their physical, emotional, social, and well-being issues that may affect them in their early life.

Jaclyn’s offering to you is to enable and empower you and your family to see your baby or child as more than just their behavior. To learn how to really understand your babies and children and to make parenting calmer and a more enjoyable experience for the most part.
