Welcome

We are a volunteer-run not-for-profit organisation based in St Kilda, Melbourne. We rehome new and pre-loved baby goods and nursery equipment to families in need. We believe that by reusing and recycling much-loved babies’ and children’s gear, we not only share the joy of motherhood with each other, but we save the earth’s precious resources too. These donations are distributed to families experiencing hardship in Melbourne and surrounding towns through our partnerships with maternal and child health nurses and local social service agencies.

This month we have two campaigns targeted the most needed items. You can read more about the need for Coats for Kids and pre-loved car restraints Buckle Up by clicking on the links. 

We take pride in ensuring all items rehomed meet safety standards and are in great condition. We give the items to people who are facing a variety of challenges and we want them to feel uplifted when they receive a donation from us. We see it as giving a gift, packed with love to provide practical support and show that people care about them.

St Kilda Mums was established in February 2009, Geelong Mums in April 2013 and Eureka Mums in Ballarat in February 2014.

Please help us ensure that no child go without the most basic material needs - like a safe cot to sleep in.

You can help by donating your pre-loved baby gear. Please go to our donate page for more information about what we can and can’t rehome and for our opening hours.

How you've helped

"Whenever I have been to St Kilda Mum’s the volunteers go above and beyond, not only providing the requested items but finding out whether there are any other items they have in stock they could pass on, such as nappies, formula, books, toys etc. Some of the mum’s I have provided items to have been so moved by the generosity of strangers that they have cried with happiness."
