Donate your Emamaco Maternity Activewear #emamaco4mamas
Emamaco 4 Mama’s
Emamaco are working with Pregnancy Assistance Bunbury to help them continue to support pregnant women and mums in-need. The service relies solely on donations from the community and are in constant need of maternity clothing for the hundreds of women they see.
If you no longer need your pre-loved maternity clothing, let us help you get them to the women who do.
Pregnancy can be a time of uncertainty no matter what your circumstances. No woman should have to feel alone or helpless during this time - and together we can help make sure they’re not.
Pregnancy Assistance Bunbury has a team of volunteers work hard to create a place where pregnant and new mothers can feel empowered and are treated with the utmost respect and dignity.
Established in 1999 by the Catholic Diocese of Bunbury, the service sees women who are in financial stress, or living in situations with family drug and alcohol issues and domestic violence.
The service provides help to pregnant teens and young mums who come to them by referrals from social workers, nurses, doctors, Aboriginal Medical Service, Department of Child Protection and Women's Refuge - as well as by word of mouth.

Pregnancy Assistance Bunbury provides women with a wide range of free services including pregnancy tests, emotional support, education and material support.
“We are setting up a ‘Baby Boutique’ where mums can be in control of what they choose for their baby. Likewise, we are setting up the maternity clothing to resemble a shop - without the price tag,” said Janet, who has been coordinating the service since 2019.
“With the help of many talented volunteers, the vision is becoming a reality. We rely entirely on donations for the items that we give to clients”.
“All our second hand items are sorted by these wonderful volunteers to ensure they are of a suitable quality and safety to give to clients, and then washed or cleaned”.
“Our most needed items, which are in short supply, are maternity clothing that appeals to younger mums-to-be, toiletries (maternity pads, breast pads, baby bath solution etc), capsules, and prams,” Janet added.
