As a Dr but perhaps even more so as a Mummy, I feel Mother to Mother are offering an incredible service to our community.
Everyone needs support after having a baby, whatever the situation, however high or low risk the pregnancy, birth or postpartum period is.
Mother to Mother is working hard to provide that.
We know that many postpartum problems can be prevented or in some way alleviated by good physical & emotional support.
By allowing time for recovery, bonding, establishing feeding & new family dynamics Mother to Mother are giving that support. It comes directly & indirectly by helping women access wider existing services- something essential to gain maximum help for each family.
Mother to Mother is doing all this with sensitivity, kindness & professionalism and I’m honoured to have been asked to endorse their admirable work.

The Rambam identifies the Mitzva of Tzedaka above all others, as the mitzva one must perform with the most care, as it is the hallmark and identifying characteristic of the children of Avrohom Ovinu.
The personal care, compassion, professionalism and dedication that is the ethos of this wonderful organisation truly embodies these values.
I salute and wholeheartedly endorse the sterling work of Rebbetzen A Landau and Mrs D Morhaim who spare no effort in providing physical and emotional support to new mothers, who often struggle to get back on their feet and recuperate whilst juggling the demands of being a 'new mum' with all their other domestic and familial responsibilities. They are a tour de force, a wonderful example of true Chesed.
May Hashem repay them with the strength to continue their incredible work, and see much nachas from their own families
