    • 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. 

    Please keep up to date on any program changes via https://www.facebook.com/realhousewifeofyorkregion/

    Looking for a way to save the kids from boredom while learning valuable safety skills? Introducing the Life With A Baby Virtual Camp! We know the kids are home more and often being left alone so parents can work or get groceries. We’ve developed the stay safe program to give your kids the skills they need to be at home alone and peace of mind for you while also meeting new friends, having fun, and enjoying a virtual camp. Lwab stay safe camp incorporates learning, safety and fun.  For children aged 8-10 years of age. 

    Give them an escape from the mundane with days full of fun! We’ve wrapped practical and academic learning in experiments, activities, projects and quests to feed even the most curious minds. They’ll meet and bond with new friends in small groups of only 15 kids, led by dedicated counsellors who will be the guide of their summer adventure.

    Trained and certified leaders will guide them through group activities using a mix of inside and outside tasks, so they’re not sitting in front of a screen the whole time. Each day begins at 10 AM and ends at Noon - so they’ve got the afternoon to do their thing, and you’ve had a morning to yourself!

    Safety Topics include : Home Alone , Basic First Aid, Social Media Safety, Outdoor safety.  Other topics include STEM, Caring of the environment, and more.  

    The cost is $100 for the one week camp, per child. Register today to secure your spot!

    HOPE is a group for women who are currently dealing with symptoms of postpartum depression/anxiety including low mood, irritability, crying, difficulty eating/sleeping, intrusive thoughts etc. This group will give you the opportunity to connect with other women and get support and education regarding postpartum mood, as well as strategies for coping, resources and referrals.

    The group will be facilitated by :

    Licensed Counselling Therapist, Kerri Gaskin BA, Dip.HTM, Cert.Ed., MACP, LCT-C, CCC-Q

    Kerri works in private practice as Licensed Counselling Therapist (C) offering support to various individuals and groups as well as professionals in caring fields as they work through the occupational hazards of compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and burnout.

    With a special interest in women’s and girls’ issues. Kerri works with women in the field of maternal mental health to help them as they build resiliency and coping skills for motherhood and beyond and offers programs to encourage girls and women to meet the challenges of peer & societal pressures with skills of resilience, positive self-talk, and self-compassion.

    Recently, Kerri has partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick to offer a free weekly walk-in mental health service in the Moncton office and regularly facilitates group programs in the areas of anger management, postpartum mental health, recovery, and families supporting loved one with mental illnesses.

    When not working with individuals and groups in mental health, Kerri is a sought-after corporate trainer and keynote speaker using her breadth of experience to take her own blend of humour, authenticity, and real life to engage audiences of 10 to 10,000 with stories that will motivate, delight, and inspire.

    Being a Preemie Parent, or parent who has had an NICU journey, can sometimes feel overwhelming and lonely. But it doesn't have to be. Whether you are still amidst your NICU journey or home, your little one is days or weeks old, or even years old... we're here for you! 

    Join us along with other preterm parents for an online chat. Think of it as a coffee date, but from the comfort of your own home, or comfortable space.

    Grab a cup of tea or coffee, and log in to the video chat with other Parent's of Preemies in a casual atmosphere.


    Note: We will be using Zoom for our meeting. If you are using a tablet or mobile phone, you may be prompted to download the app. This is an interactive meet up, and all are welcome to attend. 


    *Participants MUST register and have a valid email address*

    What is Triple P?

    Some of the most common parenting problems have very simple solutions – and now, the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is here to share those solutions.

    Triple P is a world-acclaimed program that gives parents skills to manage misbehaviour and prevent problems from happening in the first place.

    From toddler tantrums to a teenager’s defiance, from bedtime dramas to outright disobedience, Triple P helps parents sort through the big and small issues of family life – and raise happier, confident and healthy children.

    If you have any questions about this event please contact the organizer, bradford@lifewithababy.com  IF YOU CAN NO LONGER ATTEND, PLEASE EMAIL TO CANCEL YOUR REGISTRATION AND MAKE SPACE FOR ANOTHER PERSON.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS TOPIC IS INTENDED FOR INFANTS UNDER 1 YEAR OLD.   THE EVENT IS BEING HOSTED IN THE LIBRARY ZIMA ROOM.  CHILDREN ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND WITH PARENTS.  PLEASE BRING QUIET ACTIVITIES FOR OLDER CHILDREN TO ENJOY.
