    We have special rates for Advertising & Sponsorship Opportunities within each of our chapter areas. Best of all your supports goes right back to providing LWAB programming, support groups, and charitable support to mothers and families in your local community.

    Ambassadorship – At Life with a Baby, we believe in building relationships with the brands that we love, and we think an ambassadorship is a great way to do that. An ambassadorship would be a long term relationship with Life with a Baby where you would be featured in our blog, our newsletter and on our social media platforms over several months. Your commitment to working with us long term, means we can offer you better rates.

    • Ray Twinney Recreation Centre (meet out front!)

    JOIN US every Thursday morning for a stroller walk for woman of ALL AGES.  Babies in strollers are welcome!


    -----

    We leave from Ray Twinny centre at 9:45am every Thursday.

    The walk is for women who are at home (working from home, chose to stay home with kids, mat leave, have a condition that doesn't allow them to work etc) and who find that they are battling depression, anxiety, isolation and loneliness.

    I am starting this walk because I suffered from some postpartum anxiety and didn't start to feel better until I found a friend who had the same thing. Plus working from home can get very lonely and it's a tough cycle from there. With my new project of Real Housewife of York Region I vowed to make mental health and mental health awareness one of my main initiatives. Thus the walk was born.

    This walk is being offered by Real Housewife of York Region because it's for women of all ages.
