Community Mother's Programme

The Community Mothers programme is a universal home visiting support service offered to families from pre-birth to preschool.

Home visits are centred around the individual needs of the parent. Visits are arranged in collaboration with the family and on days and times that are suitable.

Community Mothers are experienced, skilled and trained to encourage and support parents to enjoy and participate in their child’s life.

We also offer:

  • Infant Baby Massage Courses
  • Breastfeeding Support
  • 1:1 Parenting Support including the development of routines
  • Healthy Weaning information and workshops
  • Parent Toddler and Baby Groups facilitated by a trained Community Mother

Resources we use:

Enhance the development of their child's self-esteem
Honour the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure
