In 2014 the Nurture Pack project began and was seed funded through a grant from Redlands City Council. The Nurture Packs are delivered to every mum who has a baby at the Redlands Hospital. The packs are a beautiful care package for both mums and bubs and include pampering for new mums along with some gentle items for the baby. The Nurture Packs also include local information of support services to assist women.
The Nurture Packs are given to the 120+ mums who birth at the Redland Hospital every month. By connecting mothers with our Centre and volunteers, we hope to reduce the health and social isolation impacts faced by new mothers and promote positive infant and maternal health in our community.
Our handmade items include a burp cloth and/or some hand knitted beanies, booties and mittens which are being made by volunteers of the Redlands Centre for Women.
To assist us in making these Nurture Packs we are seeking donations of the following:
- 100% Cotton Fabric
- Baby wool
- Knitters and Sewers
