Who are we

Mum Baby and Love is a safe space, both physical and virtual, that helps mums live a fulfilling motherhood. Through building a support base for them as they start on their journey into motherhood. Our goal is to build a community of mums who help each other cope with motherhood through a network of support groups.  We especially target new mums with a focus on a holistic approach encompassing improved maternal health resulting in fewer cases of post partum depression, physical well being and socio economic support.

Through research, we aim to develop a toolkit that can be used across Africa to improve maternal mental health, advocate for change and implement policies that edge us towards achieving the SDG 3.

We work with specialised skilled professionals in the different stages of motherhood right through labour, birth, breastfeeding and parenting.

Mum Baby and Love is a registered Trust in Nairobi, Kenya, founded in 2013 as the CSR arm of Absolute Media Pictures. Mum Baby and Love was formerly registered in January 2017.
