White Cloud Mums is a wellbeing program designed to support women who may be diagnosed or at risk of Perinatal Depression. Our research shows that with early access to clinical treatment, practical services, and emotional support, a mother can reduce her risk factors for Perinatal Depression, recover sooner or prevent the development of a clinical disorder.
We work directly with Queensland Health’s perinatal mental health services and with some of Queensland’s busiest maternity hospitals, including the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, Redcliffe Hospital, Caboolture Hospital and The Gold Coast University Hospital to support at-risk new mothers.
By helping a woman to identify and manage psychological, social, dietary and physical fitness challenges that may be compromising her ability to respond to the demands of motherhood, we empower her to reconnect with her life.
White Cloud Mums is a practical service, currently available to women living between Coolangatta and Caboolture The program addresses nutrition, exercise, and social isolation.
Women referred to the White Cloud Mums program, receive 20 meals delivered to their place of residence, the phone support of our program coordinator, opportunities for social connection and exercise and links to additional community services.
We are proud to collaborate with Women’s Health Queensland’s Midwife Check-in service, offering women access to free, confidential, untimed telephone calls with a midwife during pregnancy and after birth. You can discuss any topic, such as expectations of parenthood, emotional health, and wellbeing, or just to have a ‘listening ear’ at the other end of the phone.
