Thank you to Rachel Lucas who is helping to raise money for APP with her wellbeing boxes for motherhood, supporting women in pregnancy and postpartum.
Rachel developed postpartum psychosis in the days following the birth of her daughter Evelyn and spent six weeks in Leeds Mother and Baby Unit (MBU).
Rachel says ‘As mums, we face new challenges daily, and these challenges become even harder when all our time and energy is used up on our little ones. It is so important we take the time to recharge, and think about our needs too. I was inspired to do something to help make things a little easier for mums, and so Pour la Maman was born. With our thoughtfully curated wellbeing boxes to support women in pregnancy, postpartum and beyond, we truly hope we can make a difference. We hope you love our boxes as much as we do.’
Rachel is a big supporter of APP and is also one of our trained Peer Support Volunteers. She held a fundraiser with her family and friends called ‘Four million steps for APP’ during the month of November last year, and is also running the London Landmarks Half Marathon on Sunday 1st August 2021 for APP along with her partner James.
Thank you Rachel for your continued support of APP.
