The Healthy Mummy has partnered with Gidget Foundation Australia to help raise awareness and funds during Perinatal Depression and Anxiety (PNDA) Awareness Week from November 11-17.
This year, The Healthy Mummy has created a free Bun In The Oven healthy recipe ebook full of baking inspiration in the hope to encourage supporters to get baking and host their very own Bun In The Oven event.
The initiative asks for supporters to gather a group of friends, family, work colleagues or mothers’ group, register an event and book in a time for a morning or afternoon tea. Each guest is asked to offer a small donation with all proceeds going towards the Gidget Foundation.
To launch the 2018 initiative, The Healthy Mummy founder, Rhian Allen, together with Gidget Foundation’s CEO Arabella Gibson and Ambassadors from both organisations, including Antoinette Lattouf (multi award-winning journalist), Allison Langdon (Channel 9 television journalist and author), Brigid Glanville (ABC NSW Political Reporter), Lisa Hensley (Australian actor and close school friend of Gidget, got together for their very own bake-off.
One in 5 mothers and 1 in 10 fathers experience perinatal depression and anxiety. It impacts 100,000 Australians each year and suicide is the leading cause of maternal death. The Bun In The Oven campaign is an opportunity to take some time out and talk a bit more about how you are feeling and share a morning or afternoon tea while raising funds.
