Supporting Maternal Mental Health
Strong families lead to healthy communities, and nurturing maternal mental wellness is the best place to start.
Our mission at the Life With A Baby Foundation (legal name Healthy Start, Healthy Future) is to help foster strong maternal mental health. The challenges for new parents is real and everyone deals with them differently. That’s why we focus on inclusivity. Whether that’s supporting a newcomer to Canada with parenting workshops in their native-tongue or connecting parents who have experienced a pre-term baby in the neonatal intensive care unit, we’re here to help.
Life With A Baby Foundation is a registered Canadian charity. We manage all costs associated with running a registered charity. These include insurance (which covers the operations of every chapter), administrative and office materials, financial management including bookkeeping, accounting, annual audits and tax filing.
We are responsible for hiring incremental personnel to assist with events, fundraisers, and special initiatives, as well as all national advertising and outreach. We take care of all digital management, including website maintenance, security, and hosting.
We take pride in being as fiscally and environmentally responsible as we can by reusing, recycling, and procuring donated materials as much as possible.
