Peer to Peer Support

Finding out that you have a high-risk pregnancy, or having your baby whisked away to NICU/SCN after birth can be a traumatic time.  You may feel alone and like no one quite understands what you are going through.  

One to One Support

We have a group of dedicated volunteers who have been through various situations with both high-risk pregnancy and NICU/SCN.  We would welcome your call on 1800 TINY SPARKS - 1800 846 977 (please leave a message if the phone is unattended and we will return your call as soon as possible) or e-mail admin@tinysparkswa.org.au where we can put you in touch with someone who's been in a similar position to yourself.  Support is provided confidentially on a one on one basis via phone, e-mail or in person meeting.
