Are you friendly, outgoing and keen on organizing interesting events for moms and their little ones? Organize events such as as stroller walks, coffee chats, and other baby-friendly events right in your own neighbourhood.
Hosting means that you are willing to be the organizer at the event. You will greet people, ensure things run smoothly and be the contact person on the day of the event. For example, if you were hosting a stroller walk, you would meet all the members in a designated area and have and execute a plan on where the group was walking.
If you are interested, fill out the form below with your first event and we'll contact you to post it on the Event Calendar.
How Our Program Helps You
Life With a Baby was founded by Claire Kerr-Zlobin, a new mom facing social isolation, loneliness and PPMD symptoms. LWAB is a group of parents who help other parents by sharing experiences, meeting with each other and organizing parent and baby Workshops, programs and events.
Raising a baby is a wonderful experience, but it is can also be a challenge... Our unique approach will help you overcome some of the challenges you face as a new mom so that you can enjoy your new baby and maintain a happy, healthy family dynamic.
Through an evaluation, it's been proven that our peer support programs help reduce the isolation and anxiety that most new moms face, and in turn, minimize the likelihood of moms feeling alone and developing PPMD symptoms.
