Young families are very grateful for this help in the Otago region!

Services provided to 1316 people in the last year included: breastfeeding support services, education about safe sleeping and resources relating to pregnancy and parenting. Safe sleeping was supported by the provision of 111 sleep spaces (82 bassinets, 24 pēpi-pods, and 5 wahakura).

"Every bit helps and with Covid19 it can be difficult to locate items you need or even go and get the items. It's very tough times and to have the support of Pregnancy Help is very much appreciated"
