It takes a village to raise a child and it takes a village to support a mother

Become part of the village and help us support mothers.

The Caring Mums village urgently needs your support to reach many more mothers in need. While we have over 60 dedicated and active volunteers, it costs $1,500 for one volunteer to support one new mum for one year.

From one mother:

"We don't have any family in Australia... and I found myself without that important support. I was matched with a fantastic volunteer who became a vital part of my motherhood journey. Her wise advice was a blessing and her own experiences enriched my life... It was a comfort for me to know that she was there for me, because sometimes even the simplest question or unresolved doubt can make your day a nightmare."

Please help support our village.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Yes, I'd like to help support a Caring Mum
