During the month of May, Connected Apparel is celebrating 2020 Moms for their strength, creativity and resilience as they raise their children through the COVID-19 crisis.
Not only are moms teaching, working, creating fun games and exercises, baking bread, doing laundry and cooking before bedtime. The Los Angeles based family apparel company, owned by Jay Balaban and his daughter Leanna, partnered with The Blue Dot Project in working to combat maternal mental health issues. Their new campaign before and after Mother’s Day is Mom 2020.
According to The Blue Dot Project website, maternal mental health disorders, such as postpartum depression are the #1 complication of childbirth.
The organization is focused on teenage girls, women and the family:
- Combating stigma and shame
- Issuing policy and systems change nationwide
- Providing training and tools for moms
- Pursuing advocacy opportunities
- Making recommendations to hospitals, insurers and providers.
This silent maternal mental health crisis impacted up to 20% of expecting and new moms before COVID-19. What do you think the percentage is now? Mother’s Day isn’t just one day, it’s every during the month of May.
Purchase one of their affordable vibrant silhouette dresses or a versatile and classic jumpsuit (all priced under $95) and 10% of every Connected Apparel purchase will be donated to 2020 Mom. Sizes range from Regular size 6-16, Petite size 4P-14P, and Plus size 14W-24W. They run true to size and are consistent across all garments.
