Gidget Foundation Australia

Gidget Foundation Australia is a not for profit organisation that provides programs to support the emotional wellbeing of expectant and new parents.

The Gidget Foundation evokes Gidget’s warmth and lively spirit. Established by Gidget’s friends and sisters, the Foundation has grown and is now supported by passionate individuals, community leaders and health professionals.

Nearly 1 in 5 mothers and 1 in 10 fathers will experience perinatal depression and anxiety that is often hidden and not fully understood. It impacts around 100,000 Australians each year, and suicide is the leading cause of maternal death. Nearly 50% of all parents experience adjustment disorders.

Gidget Foundation Australia is supported by the generosity of philanthropic individuals and businesses, the NSW Government, as well as events.
