BRINGING Baby Home, a new Facebook page and booklet launched yesterday, will help mothers under 20 connect and feel supported.
An initiative of the Commissioner for Children, the project responds to Tasmania's high rates of teen pregnancy.
``Some of the feedback we got from the service providers was that young mums are judged and they don't get the same service as older mums, even in hospitals,'' Commissioner for Children co-ordinator of promotions and projects Jeanette Banks said.
``Some of them feel very isolated.
``They aren't linking up with some of the services and they need something they can pick up where ever they go that will give them some support.''
Holly Seaman had her first daughter, Laila at 19 and has just had her second baby, Eleasah.
Miss Seaman said the Facebook page in particular would be a very useful tool for young mums who often have no access to transport and therefore limited support.
``It's a really good idea because if you want to ask a question about anything it is a way to get advice and make friends that are relevant to your situation.''
The booklet will be available in hospitals and related service providers across the state.
