Expectant and new parents like Aviva need your support now more than ever.
Gidget Foundation Australia has seen an 80% increase in people accessing our service. Aviva is one of our Gidget Angels, who shares her experience of perinatal depression and anxiety to support others.
Aviva is also one of the mums whose life has been changed thanks to the support of our amazing, caring community.
“The more I researched online, the more I realised how common perinatal depression and anxiety was, and how many women were suffering in silence. I went to great lengths to find this information, seek help, and while I was out there in the thick of it, helping others going through the same thing helped me in ways I can’t really explain.
We were all so terrified, we all needed each other and honestly, it’s this kind of community and the help of Gidget Foundation Australia that got me through it in the end.” (Aviva, Gidget Angel)
This November, we are encouraging the community to come together, connect, and host an event (face to face or virtual) or bake in support of Gidget Foundation Australia.
By supporting Bun in the Oven this November, you will be creating a sense of community and raising funds for parents in need like Aviva. It could be as simple as a virtual cuppa with friends or colleagues, baking with the family, or hosting a small COVID safe event. We are always inspired by the creativity of our community, so let’s put the ‘fun’ back into fundraising together this November.
