St Kilda Mums
St Kilda Mums is a volunteer-powered charity that supports families in need in partnership with social workers. St Kilda Mums’ volunteers clean, sort, pack, repair and safety-check a large variety of essential nursery equipment. In 2016, St Kilda Mums provided nursery essentials to 7,383 families in Melbourne, Geelong via Geelong Mums and in Ballarat via Eureka Mums. This represented a $4.4 million saving for Victorian social services.
“We believe that by reusing and recycling much-loved babies' and children's gear, we not only share the joy of motherhood with each other, but we save the earth's precious resources too.”
Medela supports St Kilda Mums in various ways to provide families in need with every day essentials and items for breastfeeding journey.
One of the collaborations with St Kilda Mums is to supply additional components to convert donated Medela bottles and breast shields into the Harmony manual breast pump. Please continue to donate to this great initiative, as one bottle could become a much needed breast pump for a mum in need on her breastfeeding journey.
