Looking After The Sisterhood
Perinatal depression is an issue that is very close to my heart and my family. Women and families affected by perinatal (both ante and post-natal) mood disorders need a mountain of support. Every mum deserves to enjoy her baby and the precious experiences of pregnancy and parenting. Having a baby can leave a person feeling vulnerable and anxious, and it takes a lot of courage to reach out when things are tough.
For a long time, I have wanted to do something to support this important cause. The Flower and Willow World has given me the opportunity to help raise awareness and funds. With every bracelet sold, 15% of profits will be donated to organisations that promote awareness and build support around individuals and families suffering at the hands of perinatal mood disorders.

It's our way of looking after the sisterhood ;-)
