Hello! I’m Justine Law – a Melbourne-based postpartum professional,  home-lover and founder of Domestica.

Domestica has taken on a few forms since its inception in 2004 as a dedicated decluttering and organising service – foraying into childcare, housekeeping and in-home cooking – but now, fifteen years later I’m using the knowledge and experience  gleaned over the years to gently support and guide new Mums through this often-demanding season of their lives.

All of this is done with a focus on sustainability while I subscribe to a low-tox, low waste ethos and the ideas around mindful consumption.

During my twenties and thirties, I honed my skill-set working as a nanny, chef, cleaner, housekeeper and PA in Melbourne, London, Venice and places in between! I love helping others get stuff done, making things happen, while doing it in the most efficient manner possible. That’s kind of my M.O.

I’ve in the past studied an range of things from liberal arts, tour guiding, Italian language, urban farming and most recently – moved into the postpartum space and studied under Julia Jones of  Newborn Mothers to best learn how to support women through matrescence.

In my spare time, you’ll find me fossicking through op shops, cooking, eating, tending to my little vegetable patch or researching something that has peaked my curiosity  (I am a ‘perpetual researcher’).

I hold current police and working with children checks, insurance and am trained in pediatric first aid and food handling (supervisor level). I also hold current memberships with the Australian Institute of Food Safety, the Australian Breastfeeding Association and the Doula Network Australia.

I’d love to set up a time to chat about your needs and how I might be able to support you. Send me a message via the contact form , my Facebook or Instagram pages or give me a call. I’d love to help you!
