Meals for Mums

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, they must be referred to the service by a professional involved in their healthcare or welfare.

Who can refer?

Referrals to the Meals for Mums service are only accepted from medical professionals, allied health professionals, social workers, counsellors or anyone else directly involved in the health care or welfare support of the mother..

Who supplies the meals?

White Cloud Foundation facilitates the program and uses specialist external businesses to prepare and deliver the nutritionally-balanced meals. This means that sometimes we are unable to provide meals to a mother as they may live outside of our supplier’s delivery area. If this situation should arise, we will work with other meals suppliers where we can to facilitate the delivery.
