About the webisode

This webisode profiles Child and Family Health Service's eMums initiative, which was established and trialled as part of a research project. The pilot program provided new mums and dads with the opportunity to use an online service and message forum to connect with nurses and other parents. The goal of the program is to provide parents with access to good, reliable information online which can help them at any time on the journey with their baby, as an alternative to the traditional mothers' groups.

The eMums initiative remains in pilot mode and is therefore not accessible to the general public.
