Gidget Foundation Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that exists to support the emotional wellbeing of expectant and new parents to ensure they receive timely, appropriate and specialist care. Gidget was the nickname of a vibrant young mother who tragically took her own life while experiencing postnatal depression, a diagnosis that she kept to herself. In her honour, her family and friends created Gidget Foundation Australia, which evokes Gidget’s warmth and lively spirit.

Gidget House® provides a maximum of 10 individual psychological consultations free of charge within a calendar year, delivered face to face. Gidget House® is available to any expectant and new parents who have a diagnosis of or are at risk of developing a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder and who are pregnant or have a baby up to 12 months old. Support is also provided to people who have experienced childbirth-related loss, miscarriage or termination within the last 12 months. Partners are able to access this specialised service as well.

To access this service, clients need a referral from a GP, including a mental health care plan. To book an appointment, call Gidget Foundation Australia on 1300 851 758 or email [email protected].
