Perinatal mental illness affects up to 20%* of new and expectant mums and can cover a wide range of conditions. Founded in 2011, the PANDAS community provides practical and emotional support to anyone affected by these issues. By raising awareness of their work, Huggies® aims to help parents navigate the unknowns of babyhood so you can just be you.
