Women who have had children removed from their care have often had difficult lives. Our Pause Practices support women to build a more positive future for themselves after their children have been removed from their care. We can’t work with all women, so we have to prioritise women who are at high risk of future pregnancies that might end up in another child being removed from their care.
Check our Pause Practice map to see if there’s support available in your area. If there is, you can call or email the practice, to see if you meet the criteria and to talk about referring yourself.
