Feltmum™

Feltmum™

Maybe you’ve heard of Feltman™, the award winning diabetes education tool developed by Diabetes Victoria and the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation. Well, the Feltman™ family just got bigger with the arrival of Feltmum™, a diabetes in pregnancy add-on kit for Feltman™.

Each Feltmum™ kit includes:

  • A felt baby, wig and uterine artery
  • A set of 21 stick-on prompt cards
  • A set of stick-on discs and keys showing glucose, insulin and pregnancy hormones
  • A Feltmum™ Key Messages booklet
  • A USB stick loaded with an instructional video (also available on YouTube)

The Feltmum™ kit provides Aboriginal families with culturally appropriate, evidence based information about diabetes in pregnancy in a visual format which is easy to understand.

If your organisation is interested in receiving a Feltmum™ add-on, please complete an expression of interest form, which can be accessed online for Victorians here and interstate organisations here.

To find out more about Feltmum™ please email Colin Mitchell, Aboriginal Liaison Officer at Diabetes Victoria, or call (03) 8648 1833.
