Here at The Comfort Mama we are extremely passionate about supporting Mums on their journey in this ever-changing role. As a result we are so proud to be able to support COPE (The Centre Of Perinatal Excellence) with $2 from the purchase of each dress being donated to this charity.
The Centre For Perinatal Excellence (COPE) is a not-for-profit organisation devoted to reducing the impacts of emotional and mental health problems in the pre and postnatal periods.
At COPE, their purpose is to prevent and improve the quality of life of those living with emotional and mental health problems that occur in the perinatal period. They achieve this through their mission, vision and strategic goals.
COPE’s vision is a connected, informed and empowered community that supports women and their families to achieve strong and enduring mental health during pregnancy and the year following birth.
COPE will enable mandatory national perinatal mental health screening and referrals based on the National Guidelines, to ensure the best mental and emotional health and wellbeing of Australian mothers and their families.
At COPE they work with others to raise awareness and understanding, so conditions are identified early. They are committed to stopping the current stigma that exists, so people feel supported to speak up and seek help early.
COPE informs and educates through providing high quality, evidence-based information to empower people and guide them to care. We also serve to equip health professionals with knowledge, skills and confidence so that they can provide safe and effective care.
If you're pregnant or you've recently had a baby, COPE free guide called Ready to COPE will help you prepare for and cope with the emotional adjustments, changes and challenges that often come along with the transition to motherhood. You'll receive fortnightly emails that track where you are in your journey, so they're relevant to what you may be experiencing when you read them. The emails are filled with trustworthy and supportive insights and tips to help you to set realistic expectations for motherhood, cope with common challenges and look after your emotional health during this special time.
