Gift a Virtual Bauble to a loved one this Christmas and support expectant and new parents into a brighter 2022.

Christmas is a time of celebration, special moments with loved ones, and for many, the relief that some families can be together again. Our hearts go out to expectant and new parents, who will not be with family.

We know that more than 1 in 5 new mums, and 1 in 10 new dads will be struggling with their emotional wellbeing this Christmas. That’s 100,000 expectant and new parents, whose Christmas this year will be impacted by perinatal depression and anxiety. 

The past couple of years have challenged us all in different ways. Since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, we at Gidget Foundation Australia have experienced a 127% surge in demand for our free psychological counselling services. We have also seen a significant increase in website visitors and social media engagement, indicating an increased need for support for expectant and new parents.

We all have hopes for a brighter 2022, and together we can do something kind and thoughtful for those close to us, that also supports expectant and new parents in need this Christmas, and beyond.

Show your support for expectant and new parents who are struggling by gifting a Virtual Bauble to a loved one. Your tax-deductible gift of a Virtual Bauble this Christmas will directly support those parents who need us most right now, and into a brighter 2022. 

Thank you, as always, for your support, care, and kindness.
