Miracle Babies and Berries Pop-Up Event to Benefit Launch of New Maternal Mental Health Program

| April 22, 2022 | 0 Comments

Local nonprofit Miracle Babies will host the “Miracle Babies and Berries” pop-up event from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Sunday, April 24 at Carlsbad Strawberry Company,1050 Cannon Road in Carlsbad. Admission is $5 and proceeds will benefit the launch of My Brain & My Baby, the nonprofit’s new Maternal Mental Health (MMH) program. Community members are invited to spend the day strawberry picking paired with family-fun activities, including a sunflower maze, free games and more.

My Brain & My Baby aims to support perinatal mothers suffering from MMH disorders with early detection and acute mental health care. MMH disorders are characterized by a prolonged period of emotional disturbance during pregnancy and the first year after childbirth. Depression is the most common, followed by anxiety, bipolar disorder and postpartum psychosis. 

“MMH disorders are temporary, preventable and treatable if detected early,” said Miracle Babies President & Founder Dr. Sean Daneshmand. “When untreated, MMH disorders can affect attachment and bonding of mother and infant, leading to behavioral, cognitive or emotional delays in the child.”

The first 50 child attendees will receive a Distroller Neonate Baby donated by Distroller World, a retail entertainment brand that exists to overwhelm the world with joy by pushing the limits of imagination and creativity through unique experiences and storytelling. Each Neonate Baby requires love and care, and comes with special instructions on feeding, bathing and more to help demonstrate to child siblings the delicate care process similar to those of newborns.

Miracle Babies is dedicated to helping perinatal mothers and their families during their time of need by providing transportation, mental health assistance and supportive services.
