We have a growing number of NDC accredited practitioners available for online consultations or F2F appointments. Our NDC accredited practitioners include GPs, GP-lactation consultants, midwives and lactation consultants, psychologists,child health nurses, speech therapists, and other allied health professionals. Our NDC accredited practitioners who are GPs are now able to offer online consultations bulk-billed in response to the pandemic.

Despite statements to the contrary including representation in Google Ads, Possums is NOT the general practices known as Grow Medical, recently rebranded as Growlife Medical. Grow Medical or Growlife Medical does not have health professionals accredited in Neuroprotective Developmental Care or the Possums programs, and Grow Medical or Growlife Medical health professionals are not part of our NDC networks. Grow Medical or Growlife Medical’s website information for parents with babies is not aligned with the evidence-based Possums or NDC content. Possums is a small, highly ethical, values-based health promotion charity, which offers specialised evidence-based programs known as Neuroprotective Developmental Care, or the Possums programs.
