Who We Are


Twelve years ago, Claire Kerr-Zlobin was a new mom facing social isolation, anxiety, and loneliness. Following months of suffering, doctors diagnosed her symptoms as Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder (PMAD). When a search for a support system came up short, she built her own.



After seeing many others struggle with the same challenges, and often alone, she founded Healthy Start, Healthy Future (HSHF) in 2008. Life With A Baby was born a year later and is now North America’s largest parent peer-support network, with no signs of slowing.
