Comprehensive support for pregnancy, birth and baby just a phone call away

A new, expanded, national 24 hour ‘Pregnancy, Birth and Baby Helpline’ will commence on 1 July 2010. Women, their partners and families will be able to call 1800 88 24 36 for information and counselling on a wide spectrum of topics relating to pregnancy, birthing and life with a new baby. The service will be provided by the Royal District Nursing Service. The Government has provided further funding of $5.1 million to help a range of peer support organisations provide services to women and families throughout Australia. These organisations are SIDS and Kids Australia, Bonnie Babes and Small Miracles and Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Support (SANDS).
