Practical Help and Support

Whether your pregnancy is planned or a surprise, we know it can be challenging to provide for baby’s needs. You don’t have to do this alone.

Our friendly staff will help you make a plan so you can be organised for your baby’s arrival.

Contact us to make an appointment for a free Needs Assessment.

We can help you to assemble the things you will need for your baby. Free nursery items and clothing are provided on a case-by-case basis.

This may include baby and infant clothing (ranging from Prem sizes up to 2 years old) maternity clothing, bedding for baby, nursery furniture and other items.

Our loan library is stocked with bassinets, cots, strollers, baby capsules, and other items. These are available to families who cannot afford to purchase nursery equipment.
