Maternity Mates

A Maternity Mate is a female volunteer trained by WHFS to provide practical and emotional support to women during pregnancy, childbirth and the early weeks of motherhood.  Support can start any time from the 5th month of pregnancy, through to birth and up to either 6 or 12 weeks after the baby is born (6 weeks in Tower Hamlets and 12 weeks in Newham).  We are currently working with our funders (the NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups for each borough) to extend the time Maternity Mates can offer support after the baby is born.

Maternity Mates are recruited from the communities we serve, and where possible, will speak the same language as the mother-to-be.  Maternity Mates support the mum to help her understand the issues and decisions that affect her care, and that of her baby
