When police arrived at the home, they found bullet casings on the driveway and a bullet hole in the home's fence.
Both the woman and the four-month-old child were uninjured during the ordeal.
The woman, who has asked to remain anonymous, told 7News she initially thought the sound of the shots were fireworks.
"Then I realized it was gun shots," the woman said.
"I was too scared … I didn't know what to do."
A crime scene was established and examined by specialist forensic officers.
A man who was not home when police first arrived since returned to the property and is assisting with their investigation.
The Mount Pritchard shooting is the fifth drive-by shooting to occur across the city in less than 48 hours.
