Join us on May 5th as we walk for Perinatal Mental Health!

We at The Nest Health believe it takes a community to raise a child and support a parent. That is why we will be leading a Flora’s Walk in Vaughan on May 5th, 2024, in collaboration with the Canadian Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative.

Flora’s Walk for Perinatal Mental Health is named after Flora Babakhani, a Canadian/Toronto mom who tragically lost her life to untreated postpartum psychosis on January 14th, 2022, just 2 months after giving birth to her daughter. This should never have happened. To read more about Flora and her story you can head to: https://cpmhc.ca/floras-story/

We walk to increase awareness around perinatal mental health to ensure all families get the support they need.  Too many women are still falling through the cracks postpartum. We want to work to fill those cracks so that every woman gets the care she needs to not only survive but to thrive postpartum.

Join Team The Nest Health Vaughan as we lead a 2.5km walk to raise awareness and funds for perinatal mental health.

Moms, partners, babies, families, and friends are all invited to join us for a stroller walk to discuss, promote, and support perinatal mental health in Vaughan.

We weren’t meant to go through motherhood alone. Join us and let’s make a difference!
