About Us

At Motherless Daughters Australia, it is our aim to help women and girls navigate the emotional distress and impact caused by losing their mothers. With a deep commitment to honouring this significant loss, we bring expertise, shared experiences and a unique perspective on one of life's most precious and enduring relationships. With an unwavering commitment to everything we do, we believe in the potential of our unique community and their support networks to drive positive change. We believe there is a better way to educate communities about the lifelong impact of mother loss by providing a space for women and girls to grieve in an empowering and positive way, as they learn to navigate life without their mum. We bring women of all ages and backgrounds together to comfort, sooth and support each other in a non-judgemental space, and provide platforms to facilitate discussion that might not otherwise have been possible. But it’s not just our commitment to raising awareness of this unique bond and the depth of grief felt when a daughter becomes motherless. It's our relentless pursuit to establish and seek connections and platforms to give women and girls a voice on a deeply personal topic that is often hard to share. We believe that with the right support, guidance and resources motherless daughters will feel less alone and more supported in their life journey. The world is constantly changing around us but we believe that through connection, empathy and shared stories we can truly make a difference. We aim high, but we believe that to achieve outstanding things for bereaved women and girls, we have to remain committed, passionate and proactive in our approach.
