Physical Support

The joy a woman hopes to feel when pregnant can be overshadowed by concerns about not being able to cope and fears of being unsupported. Instead of feeling happy about becoming a mother, she may feel worried, fearful or alone.

It’s times like these a woman may need a helping hand.

Baby Bundles

Preparing for the arrival of a baby can be stressful, especially trying to factor the costs associated with having a baby into a household budget. Due to the kindness and generosity of our donors, we are able to provide baby bundles filled with a range of new, pre-loved and hand-crafted baby clothes.

Our bundles are designed to take the immediate pressure off new parents in providing clothes for Baby, and contain a mix of items, from baby rugs and bibs to clothes ranging from Newborn to Size 00 (6 months).

Home Help

The changes associated with pregnancy can impact upon a woman’s emotional and physical wellbeing, especially if she suffers a pregnancy-related illness. This may feel overwhelming, even more so when a woman has a young family or does not have family or friends who can help her. This is when having someone to give you a hand around the home can make all the difference.

Home Helpers can help with such duties as light housework, or supervision of Baby or existing children, while you take time to have a break (although children must remain in your care at all times), and, if you are unable to drive, Home Helpers can even pick up medicines or a few groceries on your behalf.

It is important to note that our Home Helpers are not counsellors – if you feel emotionally vulnerable or have problems that you wish to discuss, please call our help line to speak with a counsellor.
