Midwife sessions deliver support for Bundaberg's new mums

Sometimes all Bundaberg mum-of-two Tiffany Kelly wants is to get out of the house.

That’s why she loves bringing her boys, including three-month-old Tye, along to IMPACT Community Service’s free Meet the Midwife sessions.

Midwife sessions deliver support for Bundaberg's new mums

Each week between 10am and midday, experienced and friendly midwife Klare Craven-Hughes takes time to answer pregnancy and birth-related questions.

She also holds a monthly forum.

It’s a great chance for pregnant mums-to-be and those who have recently had a child to get expert guidance in a setting that’s secure and confidential, yet also informal.

“I’ve been a midwife for more than 18 years,” Klare said, while nursing young Tye.

Often there’s a big turnout as mums, like Tiffany, not only catch-up with Klare but also form friendships and networks amongst themselves.

“It’s really good for me,” Tiffany said.

“My two older ones love to play, while I get out of the house and can speak to people, and Klare is very knowledgeable.

“Everyone gets on so well.”

The sessions are held at IMPACT’s 108 Bargara Rd site.
