Zoe’s Place understands that pregnancy and early motherhood can sometimes be a lonely time, especially if your friends or family are not supportive of your choice to continue your pregnancy. Zoe’s Place offers a support program called Mum 2 Mum. This program matches you with one of our volunteers, who is available to meet up with you regularly, to support you through your pregnancy and the first few months of motherhood. We try to match you with a volunteer who has a similar personality or interests, and so will be able to best support you.
Our volunteer mentors are all mothers who have been where you are, and are passionate about supporting other women who are negotiating this busy and tiring season of life. All our volunteers have attended and completed our one day Zoe’s Place volunteer training, have had a criminal record check, and a Working With Children Check (WWCC). Mum 2 Mum is a unique opportunity to gain friendship, life skills, pregnancy care knowledge and parenting skills through regular meetings with an experienced mum. But best of all, you will not be alone in this journey.
