Join us 11th – 17th May
A week long maternal mental health campaign to encourage, motivate and uplift one another
We are all feeling a little disconnected from our support network of family and friends. This is felt even more so by expectant mummies and new mums (and dads), experiencing all of those big milestones and changes as we all stay at home. More so than ever we need to feel supported and connected for our mental and physical well-being.
Care To Share, aims to encourage, motivate and uplift one another.
So what would we like you to do?
