Description

POST-NATAL CARE

Parent Aid North West provides a free postnatal care service to families who have just had a baby, particularly those mothers recovering from a caesarean section. Each family situation is unique so we can tailor our support to reflect your family requirements so Mum can focus on herself and the needs of her newborn.

MULTIPLE BIRTH HOME HELP

This service is for a family with toddlers who then have twins. We are able to provide up to 240 hours of practical home help by utilising a MSD subsidy. Essentially this help is the same as our postnatal care service, but reflective of each family’s specific needs.

GENERAL HOME HELP

Parent Aid North West is able to provide free practical home help to families with babies and children under 5 years old within the North West Rodney and South Kaipara Region. Our focus is addressing the needs of parents that are experiencing postnatal depression, anxiety, overwhelmed and stressed, rural isolation, sleep deprivation, accident, illness or general hardship. We assist with general household duties, meal preparation, child care, and can help with transport, so that parents can attend medical and wellbeing appointments.
