Pregnancy Awareness Month

Did you know that May is Pregnancy Awareness Month? Honestly, I didn’t until a few weeks ago. The initiative is just a few years old and the activities associated with it are mainly held in California, but it’s a noble cause and I wanted to let you know what it was all about and pass on some links to online events and giveaways.

Pregnancy Awareness Month (PAM) was started by Alisa Donner and Anna Getty (Balthazar’s sister) in 2008 as a way to provide ideas and inspiration on healthy living to new moms and moms-to-be. The month long campaign focuses on four initiatives: education, exercise, nutrition and wellness, and nurture. Each week in May there will be events in CA and online that will focus on one of these areas. The idea is to challenge expecting women and couples to make time to do something for themselves each week that will better prepare them mentally, physically and emotionally for the arrival of their child.

Here is the main link to the PAM site:
