More Than a Care Package
A Maternal Wellness Movement
Tenth Moon is about more than the tangible items inside the box. We hope to help support as many mothers as possible and promise to advocate for maternal wellness in all its manifestations. The health of mom and baby is undeniably connected, and we believe postpartum care creates healthy families and communities. Here are a few of the organizations we love and support that might help you in your journey through motherhood.
The Pregnancy and Infant Loss Network helps to support bereaved families who have experienced miscarriage or later pregnancy or infant loss. As many as 1 in 4 pregnancies will end in loss. In October 2016, Tenth Moon announced its Mama’s Heart care package for women who experience miscarriage and later pregnancy or infant loss, with a portion of the proceeds donated annually to PAIL Network.
The New Mom Project is a registered charitable organization in Toronto run by volunteers, providing marginalized families with Baby Boxes that contain basic necessities, such as clothing, blankets, toys and books. Tenth Moon supports NMP through events, raffles, and donating postpartum care packages to new moms in need. Please connect with NMP if you have items to donate, or could use the support of this organization. Service is confidential, non-judgmental and always free.
Postpartum Support Toronto is a non-profit organization created to help new parents who are struggling to adjust to life after baby. PPSTO connects new parents with the supports they need to cope, build resiliency and feel better again. Tenth Moon founder, Lindsay Forsey, sits on the PPSTO board of directors. Please connect with PPSTO if you find yourself struggling with your postpartum mood, or share this information with someone you know you might be in need of support.
