Who We Are
Life With A Baby was founded to provide real support to real families. Since our inception, we’ve focused on empowering moms and dads to make the right choices for them about their family, health and wellbeing. Our community focus means members can meet face-to-face and participate in activities that are important to them. They become part of a group of like-minded moms and dads and can choose to share with each other the challenges and joys of parenthood.
At Life With A Baby we believe in action. Our founder Claire Zlobin has been a fierce advocate for the mental health and wellbeing of new moms since her own experience with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and her vision of a national peer-support network has helped the lives of thousands of Canadian families, just like yours.
