Pregnancy & Infant Loss

Mamas for Mamas is always working to fill gaps and we have seen one that affects our community deeply. Mamahood is not always an easy journey to achieve, and we want all parents to feel supported in this. We have created our newest online program to support mamas, papas and caregivers through the unimaginable grief that comes with losing a child in any capacity. The Pregnancy and Infant Loss Program encapsulates infertility and reproductive health issues, abortion, miscarriage, and stillbirth.

Chantel Porter is the newest member of our team who supports mamas and families experiencing loss in a holistic way. She uses breathing techniques, mediation, somatic work, and crystals to help mamas through their unthinkable grief. Chantel will be running online groups, for miscarriage and infant loss, infertility, and reproductive health issues as well as a group for mamas who have experienced abortion. She will host select sessions for partners and family members to join in this journey. Chantel will also be offering one on one sessions throughout. Our goal is to create a community of support for families that is continual for as long as they may need.

If you would like more information about this program or feel you would benefit from this community, please email Chantel at cporter@mamasformamas.org.

Other Side of Homelesness

To understand how a mom with a newborn and a toddler can end up living in their car in Canada, we must first re-examine our perception of poverty and the metrics that define it. Our current system does not accurately reflect the cost of living per capita when determining poverty cut-off lines, leaving thousands of caregivers at a disadvantage. Their income might appear adequate when compared to a national average, but in reality, it falls short of meeting their needs.

Addressing homelessness among caregivers and their children involves tackling both relative and absolute homelessness. Relative homelessness refers to those living in inadequate housing conditions, while absolute homelessness involves individuals lacking any form of shelter. Homelessness is more than just a lack of shelter—it's an obstacle to health, stability, and opportunity. Our campaign is committed to creating sustainable solutions that provide not only housing but also the necessary support systems to help families thrive.

By emphasizing advocacy, community engagement, and strategic partnerships, we aim to build a future where every caregiver and child has a safe and stable place to call home.
