MotherSafe provides a comprehensive counselling service for women and their healthcare providers concerned about exposures during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Such exposures may include:

  • Prescription drugs
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Street drugs
  • Infections
  • Radiation
  • Occupational exposures

Some women may be offered face-to-face counselling appointments at the MotherSafe clinic which is held each week at the Royal Hospital for Women, Randwick. An interpreter can be arranged for women who do not speak English.

As a vital service, MotherSafe is supported by NSW Health but it also relies on philanthropic funding through the Foundation to ensure expecting and breastfeeding mothers are provided with the best possible service.
