White Cloud’s Meals for Mums service provides practical support for women at risk of or experiencing perinatal depression. It is designed to complement the clinical care given by the mother’s health care provider.
The service provides practical support and social connection through the delivery of 14 nutritious meals to the mother’s home and phone contact with our program coordinator.
To ensure that these women are receiving ongoing holistic support that complements their clinical treatment, referrals are only accepted from medical professionals, allied health professionals, social workers and counsellors who are actively involved in the woman’s care and welfare.
White Cloud Foundation is currently proud to partner with hospitals and other health care providers in South-East Queensland, Toowoomba and Darling Downs, Townsville and Southern Tasmania to deliver the service. White Cloud is currently raising funds to expand the service to other regional areas of Queensland during 2021.
