The OneFitMama Charitable Trust was established to help our mums that a suffering with postnatal depression and postnatal anxiety.
Maternal mental health issues affect 1 in 10 women and symptoms and severity can vary from mum to mum. Support for these women is very limited and there is often long waiting lists to access what little services that are available. We aim to be able to support these mums quickly, effectively and lovingly
We run the OneFitMama PND scheme where the most vulnerable of our mums can access OneFitMama services for free. We know that exercise reduces the symptoms of post and prenatal depression as well as gives mums the ability to build a support network and take a little time to themselves. We also fund counselling and CBT sessions where we are able to and when it is in the best interest of the mum.
In addition to funding these vital services we also offer other ways to give mums with PND a little lift. This could be anything from redecorating a bedroom to a much needed haircut whatever that particular mum needs to feel loved and supported.
In order to continue offering these services we need to be able continue adding funds to the trust. As we receive not government support it is up to our team of instructors and our loyal wonderful mamas to fund raise. We do this by running a number of events throughout the year where our mums can challenge themselves physically whilst gaining sponsorship.
We also donate £1 from the sale every OneFitMama Postnatal DVD to our fund.
We are committed to helping women in the UK and every penny donated to the fund or raised through events will go towards making a mums life better
Mums Overcoming Mountains
Postnatal depression affects 1 in 3 mothers with an estimated 35000 women suffering in silence, we want to show them they are not alone!
Our Mums Overcoming Mountains annual Mountain trek will raise much needed funds for those mums that need it the most. We ask you to raise funds through sponsorship with a minimum of £100 raised by each participant and in return you will receive an official M.O.M t-shirt and the chance to change a life!
The walk is guided by a professional guide and every precaution is taken to ensure the safety and enjoyment for each participant. The day is always challenging and truly moving with many a tear at the summit!
Do it for your mum, sister or best friend. DO IT FOR YOU! Together we can overcome postnatal depression and show those mums suffering they are not alone.
