About RISA

Does your infant or child suffer from Gastro-oesophageal Reflux?
Are you receiving the support and information you need?

Caring for a baby or child who suffers from Gastro-oesophageal Reflux can be extremely stressful and you may find yourself on an emotional rollercoaster ride.

You may not realise your experience and emotions can be perfectly normal for your situation but this is where the Reflux Infants Support Association (RISA) Inc can help.

RISA Inc is a non-profit community group that offers support to families of infants and children who suffer from Gastro-oesophageal Reflux and its complications. It is run by reflux families for the benefit of reflux families and has done so since 1982.

The Reflux Infants Support Association Inc is an incorporated charitable organisation with the authority to fundraise in the state of New South Wales, Australia.
