Mums, Bubs & Bibs

The Maternal Health, Child Health and Healthy Lifestyles programs have worked together to deliver a series of workshops about smoking to Fitzroy Valley Mums and Bubs groups.

We ran multiple workshops at the town based Mums and Bubs group, Noonkanbah Irlee Bird program and Wangkatjungka Early Years program. Topics covered in the workshops included: how smoking affects our bodies, the dangers of secondhand smoke, ‘what is in a cigarette’ and smoking cessation advice.

The final workshop included an anti-smoking message painting competition, where the winner from each group received an IGA gift voucher. The women created beautiful paintings with strong messages about smoking on them. Well done and thank you to everyone that took part in our workshops.
