Support

  • Baby Safe is directed by a qualified social worker, has two other social workers on staff, as well as several trained pregnancy counselors & volunteers.
  • We are available on a 24hr basis to serve self referred women and those referred to us.
  • We counsel pregnant women (and new mothers in crisis) to address the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual state of each woman. We guide mothers who are choosing adoption through the process.  Women served by Baby Safe are connected with spiritual and social support in their community through All Nations home churches, bible studies, social service referrals, job creation schemes & training,  mentor relationships, and baby care interventions.
  • Baby Safe offers presentations for teens & adults focusing on options,  prevention, pregnancy education and follow up.
  • Baby Safe staff also do home visits with new mothers to offer education and support as means of child abuse and neglect prevention, and court ordered supervision for babies that have been placed back with mothers.
  • Baby Safe provides False Bay hospital with “new baby packs” for impoverished mothers. This pack includes a Baby Safe booklet on infant care and safety, a blanket, nappies, vest, grower, gender specific newborn outfit, baby lotion, wash cloth, soap and a handwritten note of congratulations.
  • We provide one on one, trained “mommy mentors” to at risk mothers and pregnant girls.
