Eva's Place - Pregnancy and Early Parenting Support

$
An unintended pregnancy can cause a woman to feel like she´s in a tornado. Ever felt like that?

Everything´s whirling around and you just long for someone to care, listen and offer support.

At Eva´s Place, we are there for women who are faced with a positive pregnancy test. Like 18 year old Sarah, whose partner said he would deny he was the father of her child and she´d have to face life alone; or like 34 year old Katherine, who has 4 children and her husband has been sent to jail.

We give practical, emotional and material support to women through their pregnancy and up until the end of the first year after their baby is born.

What can you do?

You can help to ensure Toowoomba women like Sarah and Katherine receive that support.
You can help to ensure continuity of support. Women and girls can be supported through their tornado experience to a place of being well prepared to be a mum. (Eva´s Place receives no government funding.)
You can help to ensure that women and girls know how and where they can receive support in Toowoomba.

How will the funds be used?

Programme Development:
Eva´s Place Mentoring programme is a key service provision. Through one-on-one and group mentoring, clients participate in lessons about pregnancy and antenatal care; new-born and baby care, preparation for parenting; nutrition, budgeting and other life skills; and more. They also build relationships with good role models who demonstrate good mothering.

Running Costs:
Rent, electricity, data, stationery, postal, cleaning... You know these costs -Eva´s place has them, too! These mundane but ever-present expenses continue day by day as we support local women.

Baby Boutique:
As women participate in the mentoring programme, they earn "Eva´s Place Dollars". The dollars can be spent in our baby boutique to acquire all the items needed for a baby - disposable nappies and wipes, clothing, footwear, bassinet/cot linen, plus larger items like nappy bags, cots, bassinets, porta-cots, baby rockers and play mats, baths etc.

$75 pays for six month´s baby capsule hire
$100 pays for two nappy bags.
$150 pays for clothing OR other supplies for a new-born (complete layette $300).
