Maternity Mates Volunteer Recruitment

Become a Maternity Mate (volunteer role with accredited training)

  • Are you interested in gaining skills and accredited training to support pregnant women in Newham, Tower Hamlets or Waltham Forest?
  • Would you like to share your skills and experience as a mother to help other mothers during pregnancy and birth?
  • Are you looking for additional, practical experience that could help support your application to study midwifery or healthcare, or supplement your training?
  • Come along to our Open Day to meet the team and find out more about becoming a volunteer Maternity Mate.

WHFS (Women's Health & Family Services) has developed a pioneering project to train female volunteer Maternity Mates to support pregnant women.  We provide accredited training (OCN Level 3) to enable volunteers to support women through pregnancy, childbirth and the early weeks of motherhood.
