Parenting Support Outreach Program
Camcare’s Parenting Support Outreach program is run in partnership with the City of Boroondara’s Maternal and Child Health (MCH) program and is available to families who are vulnerable in their parenting.
MCH nurses are often the first to identify mothers diagnosed or at risk of Post Natal Depression (PND). In addition to providing referrals to our program, they provide expertise and co-facilitation of our “Baby’s Ok, What About You?” PND Support group.
Participants in the program have reported that they feel less isolated, more confident in their parenting and appreciative that there is a home visiting component to the program.
“I have enjoyed motherhood much more, I am learning to be more flexible with my baby to learn her cues and understand what she needs. I feel closer and developed a more loving bond with her.”
