For children to thrive, parents need to be supported

Parenthood can be lonely. We're here to share your journey.

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 do

Support parents

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.

Train volunteers

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

Take referrals

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