Bell Let's Talk Maternal Mental Health for Families

Tuesday, January 23, 2024 4:31 PM | Allison (Administrator)

January 24th is not just another day; it's Bell Let's Talk Day, an opportunity to amplify the conversation about mental health, specifically maternal mental health. Life with a Baby is proud to stand together with #BellLetsTalk, shedding light on Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) and emphasizing the importance of early support for mental health. Join us by using #BellLetsTalkMaternalMentalHealth and contributing to the movement that aims to break stigmas and create a more supportive environment for moms.

The Reality We Cannot Ignore

The statistics are sobering: 1 in 5 moms will face a Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder, including postpartum depression and anxiety. Tragically, maternal suicide stands as a leading cause of death among postpartum women. The power to change this lies in conversation. The more we talk, the more we empower women to know they are not alone.

The Strength of Community

Simple gestures can make a significant impact. Supporting new and expecting moms can be as easy as a phone call, a shared meal, or an offer to watch the baby for an hour. Your support can be a beacon of hope for someone dealing with Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders.

Breaking the Silence

Creating an environment where seeking help is encouraged and normalized is crucial. By openly discussing maternal mental health, we contribute to breaking down the barriers that prevent women from reaching out.

Building a Supportive Network

Life with a Baby is here to provide resources, such as free counselling for parents, events, and activities for parents across Canada. By building a supportive network, we ensure that no parent feels isolated in their journey.
