Thrive - to prosper, flourish or bloom
Perinatal - the period from the conception of a child through to the first year after birth
Important changes to Thrive Perinatal - February 2023
I am very excited to announce that I am joining an amazing new multidisciplinary maternal & baby clinic, "Maternal Infant Wellbeing Melbourne" (MIWM). Founded by breastfeeding specialist Dr Amber Hart, MIWM is due to open in Parkville in mid February 2023.
Construction of this exciting new practice is still in progress. When the doors open I will be consulting primarily at MIWM, offering perinatal medical services to women and babies. In addition I will once again be providing many general women's & infant health services.
During this transition period and moving forwards, I will continue to see existing patients of Thrive Perinatal - please send me an email with any enquiries. New patients are encouraged to see me at MIWM, bookings will be opening in the next week.
I hope to resume Thrive Perinatal Home Visits for new patients very soon!
Keep an eye on my website for further updates, and feel free to browse this website to find out more about me and my passion - perinatal care!

Dr Miranda is a GP with a passion for helping women during their journey through pregnancy and into motherhood, a time known as the "perinatal" period. Her goal is is help future, new and expectant mums and their babies to thrive physically and emotionally at this important time in their lives.
Why Thrive Perinatal
Becoming a new parent is usually an incredibly exciting and wonderful time, but with this new life experience comes many new questions and the need for reliable advice and holistic medical care.
Many women find their perinatal experience challenging and overwhelming. Future, new or expectant mums often have physical and emotional concerns about their fertility, their current pregnancy, their upcoming childbirth, their recovery after birth and the health and well-being of their new baby.
Working as a GP, Dr Miranda Bradley often found that a short GP clinic appointment was not enough to help women and their babies with such a wide range of needs. Her vision was to create a unique and specialised medical service that aims to address ALL perinatal issues - Thrive Perinatal.
