“The long‐term health of infants and children is extensively and intricately tied to the health of their mothers.”

- American College of Nurse-Midwives

 

why it matters

Research has shown that the long-term health of infants and children is directly related to the health and wellness of their mothers. How well a mother is supported during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period has a direct impact on her long term physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing. The well-supported mother is more likely to feel confident, more likely to ask for help when she needs it, and less likely to develop postpartum depression; currently the most common childbirth complication in Canada. It is critical that families receive support not just during the standard six-week postpartum period, but well beyond; led by the unique needs of each mother and her family.
