The Wurli-Wurlinjang Family Partnership Program celebrated the graduation of their first families last week.
The Family Partnership Program provides support and guidance to pregnant mums and their families from early in pregnancy until the baby turns two years of age.
Working closely with a Registered Nurse and an Aboriginal Family Partnership Worker, each family are guided to improve their parenting skills.
Proud parents Nora Malay and Joseph Sariago with their gorgeous baby Joharni Sariago complete the Program along with proud parents Jayde Collins and Patrick Weston with their lovely daughter Khalanee Weston on June 24.
The Wurli team congratulates Nora, Joseph, Jayde and Patrick on completing the program, program coordinator Bridgette Hutchinson said.
"It has been a pleasure to work with these families and watch as they grow as parents. They are doing a wonderful job which can be seen when we look at your happy healthy little girls."
If you are pregnant with an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island baby, are living in the Katherine region and fit Wurli's client eligibility criteria and would like support with your pregnancy and parenting with our awesome Nurses and Family Partnership Workers, call 8972 9302.
