About Life With A Baby: Since 2009, the Life With A Baby volunteer based program has supportedĀ  over 2,600 families. In the latest evaluative study regarding LWABā€™sĀ  performance, the findings revealed that ā€˜peer supportā€™ and an increaseĀ  in social networks were ranked the highest and most important among theĀ  benefits participants received from the program. Participants claimedĀ  that the LWAB program ā€œhelped to decrease feelings of isolation byĀ  increasing their social network and providing activities to attendĀ  outside of the house.ā€ Of equal importance is the fact that LWABā€™s useĀ  of itā€™s online community also ā€œhelped to keep participants connected and involved in the community.ā€

LWAB is a three-tiered support-system that offers: 1. Local, community-based social events where parents may build relationships with their peers; 2. Online support and interactive open forums for communication among members; 3. Multi-lingual parenting programs with a focus on peer-support.
