Mums and bubs welcome at Elizabeth Hope Baby Club

FOR more than 30 years, the services that Elizabeth Hope established for families needing right there and then help has continued to benefit the local community.

“Elizabeth Hope and her family have always been well known for their contribution to the pharmaceutical world and the parenting community of Hobart,” child and family health nurse Summer Gwynne said.

“Her legacy continues and thrives, not because it ticks boxes and supports the at risk families, but because it serves everyone with the value of connection and that everyone is worthy of love, support and belonging.”

Ms Hope established the Elizabeth Hope Baby Club in 1986 to meet the needs of families who required immediate assistance with their baby and family needs.

Now based at Priceline Glenorchy, families can drop in for professional service, parenting guidance and support.

“The high demand of current health care services and the lack of knowing what to do can kick in and knowing who to turn to is even harder,” Ms Gwynne said.

“The Baby Club understands this and values the importance of mothercraft skills, the need for easily accessible parenting care and the need to be connected to other families and the community.”

Ms Gwynne said the club “invites you wholeheartedly to the floor.”

“That’s where the magic happens,” she said.

“We invite you to come in for professional and personal mothercraft care and knowledge, make friends and to take the time out of your busy lives, your jobs, your to-do list and sometimes the wind and the rain to share your stories.”

The Elizabeth Hope Baby Club is open Tuesday and Thursday every week between 10am and 2pm.

It is a free service located at 346 Main Road Glenorchy at Priceline Pharmacy, offering the services of child health nurses.

For more information, phone Summer Gwynne on 0408 842 046.
