The Caring Mums program provides emotional support to pregnant women and mothers of newborn babies. The program matches trained volunteers, all of whom are mothers themselves, to new mums with the goal of developing a secure trusting relationship in order to provide emotional support.

This process has countless benefits to their infant’s development, wellbeing and attachment.
