Your Postcode lottery tickets helps support our cause
Life Remedy are extremely gracious and pleased to announce their newly awarded funding from Postcode lottery. This is a fantastic opportunity for the charity to support perinatal women through emotionally and financially challenging times.
Postcode Community Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Our project received just over eight thousand pounds from the Trust to support the “Healthy Mum – Healthy Home” project. This is wonderful news for the antenatal and postnatal women in Plymouth.
Healthy Mum – Healthy Home
We believe that if women receive support at a time where isolation can creep in and confidence may be pretty low, it could in fact help the whole family. Mums are at the core of the family and sadly if Mums do not feel great, this can affect the partners, husbands and other siblings .
Exercise and social interaction can have such a beneficial impact on a persons mental health, especially when physiological appearances are changing beyond their control. Perinatal women can sometimes struggle to accept the changes to their bodies and the surge of hormones can really upset their mental well-being.
What we can provide
Our goal is provide specialist exercise sessions that give perinatal ladies the knowledge of how exercise safely. New Mums will also learn how to gently rehabilitate their bodies after the baby has arrived. We will provide Paediatric First aid qualifications to help give new Mums the skills and confidence when their baby arrives.
Not only will they be able to attend these sessions for free, but they will also have the opportunity to meet other expecting and new Mums to help prevent isolation and build peer support groups.
If you do not have access to a gym already, please get in touch and we will endeavour to get you on to one of our courses. Please get in touch for more details.
