”Offical Global Partners of World Maternal Mental Health Day”
After great success last year. May 1st 2019 is Ireland’s third Paint Your Bump Day #pyb2019 for Maternal Mental Health Awareness. It is also World Maternal Mental Health Day
We are encouraging mums-to-be to paint their bump (using non-toxic face paints!) and post a picture on social media using #pyb2019. Or maybe you painted your bump in the past and would like to share your images by using the #pyb2019
Feelings of anxiety and depression are becoming increasingly common on the road to pregnancy, during pregnancy and after baby is born.
We don’t want woman to ignore or suffer through these experiences.
We want to raise awareness of this with Paint Your Bump Day 2019.
This day is about bringing awareness to Maternal Mental Health both your own and every women out there.
Our wish is for women to feel empowered and to empower each other. To spread the word that it’s ok not to be ok, that it’s ok to get help, that’s its ok to talk about it.
We want you to know that you are not alone, every women experiences different struggles in the transition to motherhood. Becoming a mother is one of the biggest transition you will make in your life.
We need your help!
If you would like to help or get involved please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
