Supporting Perinatal Wellness

We are happy to be supporting Nurturely‘s event this May 23, 2021: A Virtual Celebration of Babies, Caregivers, Equity, and Wellness! Nurturely’s mission is to promote equity in perinatal wellness and strengthen cultures of support for infants and caregivers through preventative knowledge-sharing, collaborative exploration, and proactive community engagement.

Did you know that perinatal wellness plays a role in LIFELONG health? Physical and psychological wellness during the perinatal period is critical for the long term health of both parent and baby. The first years of an infant’s life are foundational for setting up a positive developmental trajectory. For parents, recovery from birth has lifelong implications for emotional wellness and disease prevention. Yet currently, parents and babies do not have equitable access to wellness during the perinatal period. Nurtrely’s mission is working to close that gap.  Whether you are a parent or not, perinatal health affects all of us and has broader societal implications.
