Ko te whaea te takere o te waka

Mothers are like the hull of a canoe, they are the heart of the family

Welcome to Mums4Mums / Nau mai ki a ‘Mā Māmā, Mō Māmā’

Mums4Mums brings together committed members of the community whose aim is to collaboratively improve maternal mental health outcomes for new māmās and quality of life outcomes for pēpi.

"I was a new mum with twin boys and we had no support due to the lockdowns. We simply would not have been able to cope if it wasn't for the help from Mums4Mums. These volunteers are now an extension of our family."

Our Principles / Ō Mātou Mātāpono

Connecting / Tūhonohono

Connection is so incredibly important. It's what grounds us and stabilises us and provides us with the mana and courage to face what is ahead of us. It's through lack of connections that we struggle. Mums4Mums volunteers provide that connection / whanaungatanga in the comfort of your own home. They help make the adjustment to motherhood more successful and provide a good foundation on which you and your whānau can build on. 

Collaborating /
Mahi Ngātahi

We are not going to re-invent the wheel if we don't have to. If there is an existing supporting agency in the community, we will connect them with you and see if they can assist with meals, clothing, baby items, transportation, etc. We understand that it takes a village to raise a child. Not all of your needs will be met through Mums4Mums so we will do our best to find out who else can provide support. 

Caring & Support / Manaaki/Tautoko

We do this the best. We stand beside you, support you, and care for you and your pēpi. Our services are provided in the comfort of your own home and it is done regardless of your residency status. Mums and babies are supported and given the best opportunity for a positive outcome. When māmā and pēpi are doing well, then we as a community are doing well.
