Young parents involved in the Midland Young Parents Program created a series of designs with the North Metropolitan Health Service Aboriginal Health Unit to communicate the smoke-free story.

Designs were placed on baby wraps, bibs, T-shirts, stickers and fridge magnets as part of the campaign, titled Keep the Scene Clean ” Supporting Smoke Free Communities.

Mundaring Shire President Helen Dullard said the items would be placed in packs and distributed by Moort Boodjari Mia Family Pregnancy House to new mothers.

‘The purpose is to get the smoke free message straight into homes and raise awareness of the dangers of passive smoking for unborn babies, infants and children,’ she said.
