For children to thrive, parents need to be supported

Parenthood can feel isolating. Let's walk this journey together.

Mum for Mum offers weekly in-home emotional support during the last trimester of pregnancy and for the first year of a baby’s life. Support is given by trained volunteers who are mothers themselves.

What we offer

Get help

If you're a new or expectant parent we're here to provide personalised emotional support to you during this crucial time of your child's life.


We support volunteers with extensive training and regular supervision to enable them to offer the best support possible to new parents.

Make a referral

If you are a health professional, you can refer a new or expectant parent for emotional support.


We have programs across Northern and Eastern Sydney. With your help we can increase the areas we support.

How you can help


In these particularly challenging times, your donation empowers us to continue reaching out to parents in need.


Fundraising, whether virtual or in-person, is an opportunity to bring people together to create shared impact.


As a volunteer, you will have the privilege of enabling a parent to find their unique voice and access the supports they need.

Send an eCard

Whether for a special occasion, remembering a loved one, or just saying thank you, a Mum for Mum eCard adds meaning and care.
