Did you know that one in five moms experience Postpartum Depression (PPD) in Canada? This affects over 76,000 Moms each year. Yes, 76,000!!! It can happen to any mom, so it's important to educate and inform them, and let them know that they don't have to suffer in silence or alone...that's the mission at Life With A Baby!
During this mental health week, as a community, let's raise awareness and funds for Life With A Baby to continue to run more programs and events for Moms, for maternal mental health and to prevent PPD. Join us for a 30-45 minute walk around the trail at Tudhope, and then for a playground playdate and bubbles!
Everyone is welcome to join including strollers, toddlers & spouses...the more people, the more awareness we'll raise! Feel free to bring bikes or anything else for active kids/toddlers. Please ask ALL your friends to join you in raising awareness for maternal mental health!
If anyone would like to make a donation or join the LWAB Ramara team to help with fundraising ($20 or more will receive a tax receipt), please CLICK HERE
Please donate in honour of maternal mental health and to spread awareness for more to be done to prevent Postpartum Depression (PPD).

Looking forward to a beautiful day :)
