During pregnancy and the early childhood years, it is important for women to have a safe and secure environment for themselves and their children. In remote communities, this can be especially challenging. Below, find out about the Aboriginal pregnancy resources we offer in South Australia that provide a supportive environment for new parents to help them build a strong, healthy and happy future for their families.
Save The Children has been helping vulnerable children around the world for over 100 years. We work in 117 countries, reaching millions of children and their families in need. Our work includes immediate emergency response support when disaster strikes along with long term support through programs that focus on education, health, child protection and climate change. Here is how we provide Aboriginal pregnancy support for women and their young children in South Australia.
Aboriginal Pregnancy Resources
We know that the care and support that pregnant women and young children receive during pregnancy and in those critical first years can determine the long term outcomes for both mothers and children. In collaboration with local health and community agencies, we provide Aboriginal pregnancy support through an accommodation program located in Ceduna.
Our Aboriginal pregnancy resources include a welcoming, safe, supportive and secure environment that ensures Aboriginal families get the support they need at such an important time. By providing timely support and accommodation we can help to ensure aboriginal families receive:
Practical advice on meal planning, hygiene, washing clothes and other household tasks
Support and guidance on how to care for newborns and young children at home
Help with sleeping, feeding, care and attachment
Information on local parenting programs and support available
Information on the importance of early childhood development
Assistance and advice on getting safe and sustainably housing
Help to gain access to local professional healthcare, early childhood and broader family support services
