Mums Goodie Bag
Congratulations! When you’re expecting a baby it is such an exciting time for you and your family. You are certainly off to a great start using the wonderful midwifery services provided at the Camperdown hospital. You’ve likely found this post because your midwife gave you a Goodie Bag.
BEHIND THE GOODIE BAGS
I’m Jess from Jessica Jane Photography and I wanted to give Corangamite the opportunity to welcome you and baby into our community. This is how the Mums Goodie Bags evolved.
The community is just as excited as I am in offering services and discounts exclusively to YOU. The offers these businesses are putting forward have truly blown me away! Their generosity has left me super proud to be a part of this initiative. Have a look in your goodie bag and get ready to totally flip out!! This is ALL FOR YOU.
Your community is here and ready to meet you. Sometimes getting out of the house after having a baby is all you need for a quick dose of normality and an adult conversation. I hope by knowing who is here to help you that you will pop in to introduce yourself to these lovely business people.
In your goodie bag, given to you by your midwife, you will find vouchers from the following businesses. They are here to help you and here’s how;

Snout In The Trough
Chances are you need a coffee fix after a ‘night shift’ with your baby. You might catch Jarrod having one himself as he and his wife Justine have recently adjusted to parenthood with the arrival of their daughter. Their bread is sourdough, the eggs are from happy free range chooks and what is better than the smell of good food made from scratch? Simple, honest food.
The La Mazocco is always pumping with Coffee Cartel’s finest and their provedore is choc-full of local produce. Rhubarb from Lanas Garden, ales from the Otways, cheese from the Apostles and so much more.
A great excuse to finally have that girls catch up to enjoy a regional wine or local beer and make sure you try Jarrod’s legendary Szechuan Calamari.
