No mother should feel alone
FREE postpartum care for mothers, by mothers, in the Fraser Valley.
We believe motherhood was never meant to be done alone.
Yet too many mothers of newborns feel isolated, disconnected, and overwhelmed by the challenges within motherhood. Mothers are vulnerable during the postpartum period, and when they lack the social support they need it increases the risks of depression, anxiety, and attachment challenges that can impact a growing baby and their families for the long term.
Care For Women is here to change that. We exist to come alongside mothers in the intense first weeks of their newborns’ lives, surrounding them with emotional, physical and tangible support they need to thrive.
We believe supporting mothers means supporting babies for a healthier and stronger community.
What We Do
Care For Women provides practical support for new moms that can positively impact
their families for life.
Studies have shown that supporting mothers during the postpartum period leads to better outcomes for moms and babies. We want to be the village that surrounds mothers in need, so they can face the challenging postpartum weeks knowing that they’re not alone. Visit our page Why Support Mothers to learn more.

“This is an amazing program and I believe all moms need this type of service. Thank you all so much for your help and support.”
“Thank you for your support! [My mentor] helped me so much more than I would have ever expected. Just having her to talk to on Thursdays each week was something for me to look forward to. Thankyou to everyone at Care For Women. You’ve made the transition to being a mom so much smoother and helped boost my confidence with my newborn 🙂“
“I have no friends or family [Where Mentee Lives] and Care For Women was such a blessing. You all made my experience very easy and a lot less hectic. I’m very grateful for this program. Thank you!”
[My Mentor] was an amazing mentor. Not only me but my husband too looked forward to Thursdays when we knew [My mentor] was coming. She provided great friendship and knowledge to me add a new mom. I couldn’t grave been matched with a better mentor for spirituality myself and my family dynamics
Thank you! And I cannot thank you & your team enough for providing this service. It has been so incredibly helpful at one of the most challenging times of my life. I appreciate it immensely.
[My mentor] was extremely helpful. I really appreciate her great heart to help me with folding clothes, dishes, bringing meals. Thank you Care For Women group. It made me feel that I’m not alone. I was emotionally well supported.
[My Mentor] was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She has 5 kids so she was able to answer all the questions I had. She is such a sweet person and I am so grateful to her. She always made time to visit or answer my text messages despite her busy schedule. I don’t know what I would have done without her.
“My mentor was amazing! She helped with all the small tasks that I wouldn’t have been able to get to myself and was a safe person for me to leave my baby with while I showered and napped. Wonderful women and am super grateful I had her. I wish more people knew about your services. As a new mom care for women’s made me feel supported and I hope more moms take advantage of the services you provide.”
I could not have asked for a better mentor. She was so kind and always had a listening ear when I needed to talk, and always asked how she could help. Every visit looked different but she met me where I needed her most and that’s what I loved so much. She always went above and beyond.
“I loved this program and I’m happy I got to be apart of it thank you very much! Although I didn’t have family support it felt like I wasn’t doing it 100% on my own. It was nice to be able to shower while my mentor held baby.”
I cannot thank you guys enough!!! This has been such a great experience for me. Thank you so much again from the bottom if my heart and my kids. I loved everything and with it all I have now made a hopefully life long friend with [My Mentor] and for that I will forever be grateful.

Care For Women Foundation has been a service that has been growing in our hearts for a long time. Ideas first scribbled in a notebook. Then shared with other women. Together, Renae Regehr, Amanda Adamson and Kenzi Dirks began the process of bringing Care For Women Foundation to existence. With 10 kids between them through home births, hospital deliveries and adoption, they understand it truly “takes a village” to raise kids and do life well.
With all three of us founders being clinical counsellors, we understand that supporting mothers means supported babies. Learn more about our heart for mothers:
