About Life With A Baby:
Since 2009, the Life With A Baby volunteer based program has supported over 2,600 families. In the latest evaluative study regarding LWAB’s performance, the findings revealed that ‘peer support’ and an increase in social networks were ranked the highest and most important among the benefits participants received from the program. Participants claimed that the LWAB program “helped to decrease feelings of isolation by increasing their social network and providing activities to attend outside of the house.” Of equal importance is the fact that LWAB’s use of it’s online community also “helped to keep participants connected and involved in the community.”
LWAB is a three-tiered support-system that offers:
1. Local, community-based social events where parents may build relationships with their peers;
2. Online support and interactive open forums for communication among members;
3. Multi-lingual parenting programs with a focus on peer-support.
