In 2010, Lucinda Canty gave birth to her son Ryan. She had a beautiful pregnancy. She was surrounded by love and support. Due to complications, She had a cesarean birth. Her recovery period took longer than she expected.
During her postpartum period, she had limited support as friends and family went back to work. she found herself feeling lonely and overwhelmed. She wanted the support of a postpartum doula, but didn’t have the financial resources.
She had to navigate caring for herself and her son alone. She had challenges with breastfeeding and began having separation anxiety as she was preparing to return to work. This had a significant impact on her emotional and mental wellbeing.
She suffered in silence.
Lucinda knows what it feels like to want to get help, but not knowing whom to trust.
The donations made here are utilized for families to receive services such as maternal health consultations, support services such as midwifery care, doula services, lactation counseling as well as to support community educational programs around pregnancy and childbirth.
