Loving Arms

Loving Arms is a free, confidential, home-based service.

Our vision is to see every baby born in our community adequately clothed and every new mother and her family cared for, supported and encouraged during that all important time after the birth of her baby.

We are all caring and like-minded women who have a heart to provide practical support and encouragement to expectant mothers, mothers of newborns and their families. 

Support we offer includes: 

  •  Premature baby clothes, clothing for newborns to infants/toddlers, blankets and bedding, nappies and baby equipment where there is a financial stress and need within in the family.
  •  Meals (either frozen or hot) to new mothers that don't have adequate support of family/friends.
  • Visiting support/mentor person that can provide a listening ear, support and encouragement.

*We are not health professionals and our service will work along side other health workers and support services that may be required.
