This program is specifically designed to support mothers requiring assistance with their physical, mental and emotional wellness.
Our volunteers conduct free antenatal & postnatal check ups, may identify high risk pregnancies and expedite referrals to the health system for mothers who need additional help.
Dental checks, social work, optometry, audiology screening and health education support sessions are also conducted for mothers and their babies by doctors and other health professionals.
Many of the mothers in the program come from refugee families who do not have their extended familty here. As such, this program serves as a community group for mothers to share and learn from each other’s experiences and to not feel alone; a vital aspect of mental health.
The sessions are held monthly in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Melbourne and on a needs basis in the Tweed & Murwillumbah region.
