Monto mums invited to join in baby talk

MUMS in Monto keen to know how to take better care of themselves and their babies can attend a free video conference next week.

The conference, called Putting the You Back in Mum, highlights the importance of mothers' own emotional wellbeing, which is vital for positive mother-infant attachment, as well as babies' brain development and sense of security.

Participants will also learn about the support services Women's Health offer rural mums, including the Midwife Check-in service, and will have the chance to chat to mums from other towns taking part in the event.

The video conference will take place at Monto Hospital on Tuesday, May 6, from 11.30am-12.30pm, and will include a shared lunch and self-care pack and information booklet.

Nominations close today. To book, phone Tracey Pattie on 4166 9300 or email tracey.pattie@health.qld.gov.au.
